Whether in a museum, on a cave wall, or pervading popular culture, art influences how people communicate, tell stories, and make meaning. But the study of its history can at times feel limited or unrelatable to students' daily lives. We're looking for a writer who can make a sometimes highbrow and opaque subject accessible and engaging by highlighting its incredible diversity---of media, artist identities, styles, and more.
