Professor Stephanie Busbea Delivers Humanities Lecture at Mississippi College

October 4, 2013

Award-winning Mississippi College art educator Stephanie Busbea will deliver the Mississippi Humanities Council lecture this fall on the Clinton campus.

The event will be October 22 at 7 p.m. at Anderson Hall. The Jonesboro, Arkansas native is being recognized as the MC Humanities Teacher of the Year.

Busbea, who serves as coordinator of the university’s art education program, joined the Art Department faculty in 1997. In 2011, the Mississippi Art Education Association selected her as its Higher Education Art Educator of the Year.

The newest honor spotlights one of Mississippi College’s outstanding professors, says Art Department Chairman Randy Miley.

“Dr. Busbea actively engages her students in the learning process and strongly believes that art education goes far beyond the classroom and permeates all areas of our lives,” Miley said. “We are proud to have Dr. Busbea serve with us and advance the cause of art at our university, and at the local, state and national level.”

Busbea advises the Mississippi College student chapter of the National Art Education Association. She’s made significant contributions to the Baptist-affiliated university in art education, art appreciation and research.

Her lecture will be on the topic “The International Style in the South: Architecture by William and Samuel Wiener.” The Tuesday evening program at President’s Dining Room B is free and open to the public.

An Arkansas State University graduate, Busbea received her master’s at the University of Georgia and a doctorate at the University of North Texas in 2006.

Wayne VanHorn, dean of the MC School of Christian Studies and Arts, added his congratulations to the teaching award for Busbea.
