Background

Alison Rossi is an art historian and art educator. After earning her B.A. in Humanities from the University of San Diego, she became a fellow of Syracuse University where she graduated with a M.A. in Art History. Over the last decade, she has served as an art educator in various academic institutions and art museums.  As an art historian, she enjoys conducting primary source-based research involving everything from scouring Renaissance manuscripts in Florence, Italy to interviewing traditional artists and craftspeople in California. Both the preservation and evolution of indigenous art forms across cultures are of particular interest to Rossi, an Oklahoma native. In working with students, she hopes to make accessible both the universality and uniqueness of works of art around the world through experiential learning.
