South Asia Center presents
Jeweler's Art from Italy to India
East to West and across cultural boundaries, the jeweler plays an important
part in constructing objects and adornments of splendor. Join Laura Marsolek,
graduate of Syracuse University’s Florence Master’s Program in Italian
Renaissance Art, and the university’s first Henry Luce Scholar, as she
discusses her journey studying the goldsmith's craft across continents, both in
the museum vaults and in the city's workshops in Florence, Italy and Jodhpur,
India. As a Luce Scholar in residence, Laura worked in the curatorial
department at Mehrangarh Museum Trust in Jodhpur (2018-19). At SU, she
was a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program and earned her B.F.A. degree in jewelry making and
art history (College of Visual and Performing Arts). She went on to complete her M.A. degree in art history
from the department of Art and Music Histories (College of Arts and Sciences). For a sneak peek at Laura’s experience as a Luce scholar
