Stephen Urchick specializes in the painting and print culture of Russia’s 19th century with a focus on the Partnership of Traveling Art Exhibitions, or “Peredvizhniki.” He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago in 2016, where he interned at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, led inquiry-based tours for the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, and wrote extensively through the alternative weekly news magazine “South Side Weekly.”

In New Haven, Stephen has since developed and taught a teen arts journalism intensive with the city’s 501(c)3 arts service organization, coordinated creative placemaking initiatives under Yale’s Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking, and has worked to accession over 1,100 Soviet posters to the collection at Yale University Art Gallery.
