Casey Published in Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History

Emily Casey, assistant professor of art history, had an essay published this week on the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. The timeline is an invaluable public resource for the study of the history of art, from one of the most prestigious art museums in the country.

Titled, “Visual Culture of the Atlantic World,” the essay examines how the interactions among peoples and nations of Europe, West Africa, and North and South America from the 15th to the early 19th century, helped create global visual and material culture such as portraits, silver tea services and mahogany tables made from colonial materials to serve elite tastes. The full essay can be found here:

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
