Ink and Image, New York University’s journal of undergraduate research in the history of art, architecture, and urban design, published its fifth issue this month.

The journal’s student editors for the 2012-13 academic year were Art History majors Rachel High, Thor Shannon, and Nora Boyd, all class of 2013; Boyd is also an Urban Design and Architecture Studies minor.  The cover was designed by Suzy Shaheen, Art History ’10.  Once again, Professor Carol Krinsky provided invaluable assistance as faculty advisor.  Six articles, all by undergraduates studying at NYU, appear in the fifth issue.  The authors and their essays are as follows:

–Kaylee Alexander (Art History ’13), “Blue Hole, Flood Waters, Little Miami River:  The Aesthetics of Abolitionism and the Underground Railroad.”

–Vivian Chen (Art History ’13), “The Elgin Loot:  National Treasures and Cultural Properties from Greece and China.”

— Zachary Fine (Gallatin ’15), “Lucia Freud’s Naked Girl with Egg: A Meditation on Temporality.”

— Anna van Niekerk (Art History/Politics ’14), “Failure to Integrate: 41 Cooper Square, New York, Thom Mayne and Morphosis.”

— James Walsh (Urban Design and Architecture Studies ’13), “Selling a Community: Shopping Centers and the Suburbs.”

— Karen Zabarsky (Urban Design and Architecture Studies ’13), “Design Intent in the Preservation of Modern Architecture: The Aluminaire House.”

Ink and Image was founded in 2009 by department alumni Malcolm St. Clair ’09 and Alexis Wang ’09 with the goal of expanding the community of scholars at NYU by publishing original undergraduate research in the history and theory of art and architecture.  St. Clair and Wang served as executive editors of the inaugural issue, while Adrian Marshall ’10 served as associate editor and Professor Kenneth Silver as faculty advisor.  The first issue featured articles by Art History majors Chase Booker, Alexander Kauffman, Natalie Dûpecher, and Michael DeNiro.  Marshall and Kauffman edited Issue 2, which included articles by Alex Govenar, Anne Feng, and Hannah Green, all Art History majors or minors.  Issue 3, edited by Art History majors Sofia Chirico ’11 and Mia Laufer ’11, and John Kwiatkowski, Gallatin ’11, featured articles by Lindsey Berfond, Whitney Theis, Christopher Purpura, and Sam Siegel and Peter Spalding, all Art History or Urban Design majors (see our May 27th, 2011 post).  Art History majors Alexander Ciesielski ’12, James Newhouse ’12, and Hillary Pearson ’12 served as editors of Issue 4, which featured articles by Kaylee Alexander (a two-time Ink and Image author), Renny Grinshpan, Alicia Caticha, Julia Gage, and Nick Kazmierski – all Art History or Urban Design majors – as well as Eun Jin Kang, a Comparative Literature/Cinema Studies major, and Dina Münzfeld, an international exchange student from the Humboldt University of Berlin (see our May 7th, 2012 blogpost).

The articles published in each issue of Ink and Image develop out of term papers and other research conducted by students in advanced Art History and Urban Design courses, independent studies, and senior honors theses.

College of Arts & Science Dean Matthew Santirocco and Dean Sally Sanderlin provided crucial support toward the launch of Ink and Image, which continues to benefit from the support of the current CAS Dean, Gabrielle Starr, the CAS administration, and the CAS Student Council.   Ink and Image is distributed to the New York Public Library, the Library of Congress, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Getty Research Institute, as well as Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, and Technical University in Dresden, Germany.
