Tanya Sheehan, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Art, has participated in a virtual roundtable discussion with two other editors of leading journals in the field of American art. In conversation with Jennifer Marshal and Jacqueline Francis of Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art, Sheehan discussed her work since 2015 as the executive editor of the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art Journal. The oldest periodical devoted to art in America, Archives of American Art Journal has undergone a significant transformation under Sheehan’s leadership.
The Nov. 19 event, focusing on the history, current goals, and future trajectories of these two prominent journals for American art, was organized by Jennifer Greenhill of the University of Arkansas School of Art in collaboration with the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art.
