Associate Professor Dr. Jennifer M. Feltman was interviewed and quoted by the Washington Post throughout their story on the February unveiling of the spire of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and the general approach the restoration is taking:

“Jennifer Feltman, a medieval art historian at the University of Alabama who is part of an official team studying Notre Dame as it’s restored, said in a phone interview that the unveiling was “just remarkable.” “For them to be at this point has required a great deal of dedication,” she said.”

William Dooley, director of the SMGA and associate professor of drawing, had paintings in a three-person exhibition, “Similar but Different,” at the Vulcan Materials Gallery at the Alabama School of Fine Arts in Birmingham in February.
