Dr. Judy Bullington, professor of art history and chair of the Department of Art, was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). She will serve a 3-year term on the board in addition to being Belmont’s official institutional representative to NASAD, through which all art and design degree programs are currently accredited.
Bullington was also nominated and elected to serve on the education committee of the College Art Association. She started on the committee at the 104th Annual CAA Conference held in Washington D. C. in early February. The education committee promotes the visual arts as an essential aspect of human activity and as a creative endeavor and subject of cultural and historical inquiry and critical appreciative activity. It encourages excellence in teaching at all levels. Its focus is on pedagogy at the higher education level in art history, visual culture, studio, aesthetics and art criticism and on the interface between teaching and learning research and practice.
