Lance Herrington was the Art Department’s Visual Resources Curator and Instructor of Art History, before he became an Adjunct Instructor of Art History when he joined the faculty of the Intensive English Program at UM in January 2007.  He earned his B.A. in Art History from the University of Texas, a M.A. in Art History and a second M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) from the University of Mississippi.  He previously lived in Osaka, Japan, where he taught English, and traveled extensively throughout Japan. Since returning to Oxford, he has led groups of Ole Miss students to Japan for Art on Location courses.  In the Art Department, he regularly taught Introduction to Western Art and the online versions of History of Art I and History of Art II, and co-taught Art on Location: New York during Intersessions.  Since 2007, he has taught a section of Introduction to Non-Western Art, and Egyptian Art and Architecture, and offered a travel version of History of Art II.  Currently, he developed and teaches the Independent Study version of History of Art I.  After a faculty-exchange in Ecuador during Summer 2010, his most recent interests include the colonial Quito School and the 20th-century painter Oswaldo Guayasamín.
