MASSART TRANSFORMATION Dear Friends, This has been another landmark year at MassArt, marked by record-breaking fundraising and the ongoing evolution of our urban campus. It has been my privilege to serve as Interim President, as the College embarked on a nationwide search for its next president. Dr. David P. Nelson was named the 12th president of the college by the Board of Higher Education, effective June 2016. We are delighted to have President Nelson join our exceptional community and our longstanding commitment to creativity, innovation, and artistic excellence. With them, we are uniquely poised to focus on our core mission of providing a world-class education to everyone with talent and the will to succeed. We are profoundly grateful for the support of each donor who has generously contributed to MassArt this year. Philanthropy plays a vital role in creating the infrastructure at MassArt necessary to inspire young artists from underserved communities to confidently pursue an art and design education. This financial support has made it possible for hundreds of MassArt students to study in such distinct destinations as Italy, Israel, India and Japan. These travel scholarships allow our students, many of whom have never traveled outside of the United States, or even their own states, to immerse themselves in cultures around the globe. The impact on their artmaking is immeasurable.
PROVIDING A WORLDCLASS EDUCATION TO EVERYONE WITH TALENT AND THE WILL TO SUCCEED.
