Abbey O'Brien

Abbey O’Brien is a senior majoring in History and Art & Architecture. Originally studying Art Education with a minor in Art History at the University of Vermont, Abbey transferred to the University of Pittsburgh in 2013 where her passion for art history flourished. She is interested in a broad scope of modern topics that range from Austrian art during the fin-de-siècle and interwar periods to the impact of the Mexican mural movement. Deeply interested in how radical political art has served as vehicle to elicit change, Abbey hopes to continue on this research path post-graduation. 

Abbey will present a paper entitled "Radical Muralism in Three Dimensions: A Close Look at Siqueiros’ May Day Political Float," at HAAARCH 2015.
