Spring 2021 Graduate Spotlight: Noah Mapes, B.A. Art History, Honors Candidate

Noah reflects, “I greatly appreciate my time as an art history major. Over the past four years in Madison, the art history community has provided me many opportunities to grow as a person as well as a scholar. I value the close relationships I’ve developed with my fellow students as well as staff and faculty members in the department. Moreover, academic work and research projects have helped me learn about my interests, contribute to my community, and develop a stronger sense of self.” Noah’s achievements include the Warfield Family Art History Essay Prize (2019), Hilldale Undergraduate Research Fellowship (2020), Chipstone-CDMC Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (2020), and Trewartha Undergraduate Honors Research Grant (2020). In fall 2021, Noah will join Cornell University’s History of Art Ph.D. program where he will continue to study Indigenous and Native American art.
Congratulations Noah!!!🥳🎉🎓
