Although our goodbyes to summer were cut short, fall is gearing up for a Coup d'état, and ushering in the season of academics. With first days of school beckoning back students, this post is an homage to learning (equally supported by FADA’s commitment to scholarship: remember to keep up with Gertrude). While research topics are chosen at university, art institutions are set on welcoming patrons with new fall exhibitions exploring new fields of art history.
