Since the initiation of PLU’s BA in art history in 2008, Heather’s teaching has focused on modern and contemporary art in Europe and the United States. This has included topical classes that extend beyond the Department of Art and Design, such as a seminar in Gender issues cross-listed with the Women’s and Gender Studies program and a course in Art and Society for the International Honors Program.
In 2008 Heather took on the programming of the University Gallery. The Gallery serves as a fulcrum between PLU and the larger community, hosting numerous talented artists from the Tacoma area and serving as a showcase for the work of PLU students and faculty.
