BA Honors | Art History
I am a senior from Rumson, NJ studying art history with a minor in digital marketing. My favorite art period is Modern Art, which influenced my choice in topic for this thesis project. I hope to have a career in art business, particularly in working in client development or client relations management, so I am excited to begin working at Gagosian in New York after graduation! Outside of school and work, I have been on the Notre Dame Women’s Boxing team for four years, and I love spending time at home by the beach with friends and family.
Antonio Sant’Elia: The Father of Modern Architecture
My thesis examines the work of Antonio Sant’Elia of the Futurist movement, with particular attention paid to his project La Città Nuova. I attempt to prove the historical importance of his legacy and recast him as a leader in his field and a founder of modern architecture. Sant’Elia died in World War I before most of his work could be realized, but hundreds of his preserved drawings prove him to be innovative and an avid appreciator of the marvels of modern technology.
