William Ruggiero, Art History major class of 2008 recently became an assistant curator at the Chicago Institute of Art. He is an art historian and critic with two centers of interest: Latin American art, and current trends in socially engaged art practice. William has been involved in community teaching, programming, and civic engagement, developing different curricula in China as well as in the United States. Curatorial projects are of particular interest to him, as he considers his fields of focus to demand more scholarly and curatorial exploration. Currently, he is writing his thesis on Domingo Álvarez, the first at length critical conversation about the Venezuelan architect and urbanist of the sixties. In addition to his curatorial fellowship, he is dedicated to researching as a curatorial assistant for Sullivan Galleries on an upcoming exhibition in 2014 that will focus on Chicago social practice.
