KIRSTIN

A Purposeful Work intern with the 2018 summer Bates Dance Festival, prospective mathematics major Kirstin Koepnick ’21 of Nashville, Tenn., had various responsibilities, from lights and electric to sound to stage management. The experience helped her align a budding interest with a potential career — the goal of Bates’ Purposeful Work initiative.

“This experience has made me think of technical dance and theater as a viable career option.”

Hartley Purchase The Museum of Art’s purchase of a painting by Marsden Hartley, a major figure in American Modernism, is one outcome of a $100,000 grant to the museum from a foundation in New York City. Half of the grant from the Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Foundation for the Arts has helped fund the purchase of “Intellectual Niece,” a late Hartley oil painting depicting his niece Norma Berger. The rest of the grant will fund the documentation of items in the museum’s Marsden Hartley Memorial Collection, part of the development of a fully accessible online catalog of the collection.

Right: Marsden Hartley’s “Intellectual Niece.”
