Gaining Perspective: A Visual History of MassArt

Gaining Perspective

On View: February 19 - March 20, 2015

A celebration of MassArt's unique history and significant impact on the world through the visual arts, design, inventions, teaching, and achievements of the college's renowned alumni and faculty.

The exhibition is organized chronologically, according to the phases of the College’s evolution as exemplified by the institution’s four names over 142 years of existence, and a representative sample of alumni are featured for their contributions to a variety of industries over more than a century.

In addition to the objects, artwork, and photographs in Gaining Perspective the public is encouraged to participate in a photo booth installation by Cindy Bishop '13M, in which the participant’s photo is placed into a historical photograph at MassArt.

Visitors are also invited to contribute to the exhibition by sharing their experiences at MassArt by tagging Instagram or Twitter posts with #MassArtMemories.

Curated by Paul Dobbs, M.A., MassArt Library Director and former archivist, Librarians Caitlin Pereira '04 and Greg Wallace, and a team of MassArt faculty and staff.
