Description


Join us for a visit to the newly renovated School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) hosted by Dean Nancy Bauer. We’ll learn about the SMFA’s history and mission, meet faculty and students, tour art studios and watch art being made. After a delicious lunch, we’ll hear from senior thesis students who will present their works in progress. Dean of Arts and Sciences Jim Glaser, A14P, A17P, will describe the “back story” on the acquisition. And we’ll learn about the courses, seminars, and workshops the SMFA offers to the general community.
