By Danielle Ezor “HECAA at 25” to foster community, idea exchange While most art historians spend their summers traveling and conducting research across the globe, Meadows Associate Professor Amy Freund spent hers poring not over books and archival documents but spreadsheets and budgets. The reason: Freund, the Kleinheinz Family Endowed Chair in Art History, is organizing the first conference of the Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture (HECAA), to be held at the Meadows School November 1-4.
