Art History Chapter

The Art History chapter of the La Trobe University Alumni aims to provide for the La Trobe student a connection with the university after the completion of study, and in particular to enable the graduate to have continuing access to learning, social and career opportunities centred on an interest in art and art history.

The chapter is managed by a committee of members who arrange a yearly program of activities, on and off campus, that reflect the wide range of member interests, such as visits to artists' studios and workshops, lectures by art historians, visits to public and private galleries, discussions with art industry experts, and informal, social gatherings with fellow members.
