There's nothing like seeing real art, in the flesh!
Talking about art in a classroom, looking at slides or other images, can certainly be educational, enlightening, even fun, but all art majors should plan on experiencing at least some actual art objects first-hand before they graduate. This can be done here in Jackson, of course, or on travels to New York, Washington, or other major American cities. But a trip to Europe is a different experience altogether. We encourage all of you to travel as much as possible, especially on academic programs that will help you engage other cultures in meaningful ways. Millsaps' own study-abroad sessions can take you to cities such as London, Paris, Nice, Munich, Florence, Rome, Athens, and Merida and Kiuic in Mexico, among others, or you can participate in programs run by other institutions.
