This site was conceived of, researched, written, and designed by students in the Art Department at Truman State University as part of the Art History major course ART329 Historical Methods.  The following students created this site:  Nick Corich, Elizabeth Esry, Beth Guckes, Natalie Hall, Michelle Krewet (designer) Cecilia Muruato, Hannah Schnucker, and Claire Ungashick.
