The Art History Department is saddened by the news of DeAnn Dankowski’s recent death at the age of 51. A former student in the graduate program, Dankowski was an advisee of Professor Weisberg’s and wrote her Masters paper on “Social Reform Through Art: Victor Horta and the Maison du Peuple.” After receiving her MA in 1990, she worked at the Minneapolis Institute of Art for 23 years. Her museum career began with work as a Production Coordinator in the Design and Editorial Services Department. She went on to serve as a Permissions Coordinator in the Curatorial division and as a Senior Administrative Assistant in the Photography and New Media Department. Our sincere condolences go out to her loving family and many dear friends.
