Imagination MattersBoston Creates, an initiative launched by Mayor Marty Walsh, has sparked a cultural renaissance in the city. MassArt's new president, David Nelson, joined Jared Bowen and Jim Braude on Boston Public Radio to discuss the arts and cultural scene in Boston, as well as his vision for MassArt. He also shared his thoughts on the value of an arts education to the individual and society—and its viability as a career path.
While David was visiting the WGBH studio, he also spent time with MassArt alumnae employed by the station.

Frederick Lynch: Legacy of Figurative AbstractionFrederick Lynch '62 (Painting), one of the most respected and admired artists in Maine, passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at the age of 80. In a career spanning more than 50 years, Lynch pursued a singular vision that began with the observed world and went deep into the underlying structure of appearances. He will be greatly missed by his many friends, colleagues, and former students for the integrity and intensity that he brought to the work of art.
