Dr. Hutson was born in Oklahoma and studied there, as well as Texas, and Maryland, teaching and working also in Virginia and Washington D.C. Moving to the St. Charles area in 2010 with his wife Piper, he is currently Assistant Professor and Program Manager for Art History.

Educational and Professional Experience

Dr. Hutson has a BA in Art from the University of Tulsa, Tulsa, OK, where he majored in Studio Art (oil painting) and received a certificate in Museum Studies. Thereafter he earned a MA in Art History from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX, specializing in Italian Baroque Art; then moved to College Park, MD to finish his PhD in Art History at the University of Maryland, specializing in Early Modern Art with a minor specialization in Late Medieval Italian Art. He has been teaching since 2006. Before coming to Lindenwood, he taught at Townson University, Townson, MD, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, and American University, Washington D.C.


Dr. Hutson is a member of the Renaissance Society of America and the Sixteenth Century Society, interdisciplinary organizations that brings together international early modern specialists from History, Literature, Art History, and Linguistics, where he presents annually at conferences around the world. He is also a member of the College Art Association, the largest organization in the United States that unites artists, art historians, museum curators and others in the field of visual arts. 

Research Interests

Dr. Hutson is an  art historian who specializes in early modern intellectual history and art theory. His past articles focus on treatises published by/for artists and how those shaped their careers and artistic goals, especially relating to cosmology, astronomy and anatomy. His latest book surveys the changing understanding of beauty and its origins in the human mind/soul from 1400-1700 in Italy and France.

Teaching Interests

As the full-time Art Historian here at Lindenwood, Dr. Hutson teaches the introductory surveys open to all students, and that prepare those in the Art and Design department for advanced study in the field. Additionally, he teaches all advanced classes from Ancient through the Nineteenth Century, along with capstone courses that prepare students for graduate studies.
