Art History

This blog is to just vent about what it is like being an art history major in college. We hope you enjoy, and feel free to submit any ideas! :)

Hey guys! 

We both wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING SO AMAZING! After 3 years, we have finally reached 1,000 followers! So many of you guys have been following us from the start, back when David looked a little sketchy and we were drunken fools trying to survive college. We have gotten to know a lot of you guys and have even made some friends from this blog, like theartoflivingfromwithin, who has followed us since the start and now the three of us stalk each other’s instagrams! It’s always nice to see those familiar names reblogging our posts and sending us lovely messages. We didn’t even think our blog would make it to 100 followers, so this is a huge accomplishment for us. 

Seriously, you guys are all fucking amazing!

theartoflivingfromwithin asked: Okay so cliche question here. What are jobs related to art history? I want to do a masters but I can't decide between graphic design, exhibit design, or art history.

Honestly, I still don’t know. There are definitely the obvious choices, like working in a museum or gallery, teaching, and all that.

When I went to my advisor, he mentioned being a curator, art dealer, art restoration, tour guide, working in advertising/marketing and anything else really that deals with art. He also said that Med schools and Law schools like art history majors because we are very detail oriented and are good at researching. 

If anyone has any other careers or anything, feel free to comment or message us!

I know you avoid politics but look at this.This shot from Gaza could go around the world and become a new icon for the horrors of war but it won’t. The father in profile almost looks like a character in Guernica for crying out loud. That is very unnerving.

Meaning we are able to look at a work of art we have never seen before and talk about the composition, style, etc. for hours
