Dr Catherine Burke, Faculty of Education and Sylvia Rhor, Carlow University, USA .

The seminar will present Dr Burke’s recently published book ‘A Life in Education and Architecture. Mary Beaumont Medd 1907 – 2005’.

Professor Rhor will talk on the subject of Outstanding American Women: Shaping Chicago’s Public Schools through Murals in the early 20th Century

Dr. Sylvia Rhor is Associate Professor of Art History at Carlow University. Her doctoral thesis focused on the recently restored murals in Chicago’s public schools. She became involved with this collection while directing “Chicago: A City in Art” at The Art Institute of Chicago. In that capacity, Dr. Rhor was part of a large-scale effort to locate, preserve, document and re-integrate historic murals into contemporary school life. After leaving the Art Institute, she was hired by Chicago Public Schools as a consultant for the mural collection. She also contributed research and an essay to Heather Becker’s Art for the People and served on the curatorial team for To Inspire and to Instruct: The Art Collection of Chicago Public Schools, an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago. Dr. Rhor will be drawing on her work on the historic murals in Chicago public schools in this presentation.
