FLOURISH: ALUMNI WORKS ON PAPER

MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
BAKALAR GALLERY
JUNE 6 - JULY 9, 2011

Flourish: Alumni Works on Paper, the first juried alumni exhibition to be held at MassArt, showcases the breadth of talent and excellence embodied by MassArt’s artists and designers. This exhibition highlights the wide range of work by the college’s diverse alumni and includes painting, collage, interactive sculpture, photography, performance, fashion, and graphic design.The 64 alumni represented in this exhibition are part of the distinguished 138-year history of MassArt, whose notable alumni include Shelby Lee Adams (’89), Brian Collins (’82), Robert Cumming (’65), Sam Durant (’86), Christian Marclay (’80), Richard Phillips (’84), Jack Pierson (’84), Ellen Rothenberg (’78), Glen Seator (’84), May Stevens (’46), William Wegman (’65) and Jackie Winsor (’65).

With more than 15,000 living across the globe, MassArt alumni can be found in almost every corner of the art and design world. They are Fulbright scholars, Oscar-winners, and Guggenheim fellows. MassArt alumni exhibit work in world-renowned museums and galleries, but they are also the quiet genius behind things we see every day, like blenders and Windex. They train the artists of tomorrow in elementary and secondary schools, as well as at colleges and universities across the country. Their contributions are significant and broad, and we are proud to have the opportunity to exhibit this small but exciting segment of their work at the college.

MassArt was honored to have Tammy Dayton '98 (Graphic Design), Creative Director, Moth Design; Michelle Lamunière, John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Assistant Curator of Photography, Harvard Art Museum; and Edward Saywell, Chair of Contemporary Art and MFA Programs, Museum of Fine Arts to serve as our selection committee.
