SO, WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?


In April 2010, MassArt launched its $140 million transformational campaign. As of July 1, 2011, we are at 89 percent of our goal. To reach the finish line, we need your help. The campaign is about staying at the forefront of art and design; preserving our legacy as the oldest and only independent public art college in the nation; remaining committed to diversity, individual creativity, and collaboration; sparking cross-disciplinary learning opportunities; embracing new technologies; influencing contemporary culture; growing partnerships with neighboring colleges, museums, and businesses; and strengthening community engagement efforts. Launched by former President Kay Sloan and now guided by President Dawn Barrett and a dedicated team of leaders, the campaign pools together private support with guaranteed public funding and allows us to focus on three key areas: >

Raising our endowment from $9 million to $17 million so we can attract top talent with fellowships, grants, and financial aid, as well as broaden our community outreach. Growing our presence along Huntington Avenue while strengthening our campus community by finishing renovations to the Campus Center; completing construction of the Residence Hall; breaking ground on the Center for Design and Media, scheduled for spring 2012; and renovating the Bakalar & Paine Galleries, scheduled for spring 2014.

>

Elevating our annual giving to $2 million so we can add more scholarship awards and attract the most talented students to campus.

The time has come to raise the remaining funds to transform our college, our community, and our status as one of the best art and design colleges in the country. With 89 percent already raised, we’re almost there.

Meaningful transformation requires vision, commitment, and creativity—and that’s what we have with this campaign. Our city, our students, and our economy will truly benefit from MassArt’s bold plans. THOMAS M. MENINO, MAYOR CITY OF BOSTON

While MassArt remains one of the top schools for painters, printmakers, sculptors, and other fine artists, we’re also now grooming the next generation of animators, architects, industrial designers, and new media professionals. And though they don’t conjure up the traditional image of an artist splattered in paint or clay, they’re applying their talents in an equally creative way — designing blockbuster video games, developing medical technology that saves lives, and creating computer software that fuels business. This certainly isn’t the future state legislators could have imagined when they founded MassArt in 1873 as the first publicly supported art school in the United States. Back then, they were more interested in training qualified drawing instructors to fill a void in the state’s manufacturing industries. But as the years passed, school administrators added new academic into what it is today — a creative center for free-thinking artists, designers, and educators; a college that prepares students to influence contemporary culture and fuel the creative economy; a small school with big ideas for helping its neighborhood, city, and region thrive well into the future.

WELCOMING RECEPTION LOBBY WITH VISITOR AMENITIES


It’s quite remarkable the types of exhibitions you’ll see at the Bakalar & Paine Galleries. This is cutting-edge contemporary art you simply won’t see anywhere else. JOHN FOSTER, MEMBER MASSART FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

The firm chosen to bring these plans to life is Machado and Silvetti Associates, a Boston-based architecture and urban design firm noted for its unique expertise in art museums and educational institutions. Named by Architect Magazine in 2011 as one of the best firms in the U.S., Machado and Silvetti’s impressive portfolio includes the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and Getty Villa in California. For its work — which can be found around the globe, from Berlin to Beirut — the firm has earned numerous accolades, including the AIA Brick in Architecture Award, 10 Progressive Architecture awards and citations, 13 design awards from the New England AIA chapter, 17 Boston Society of Architects awards, and the prestigious International Award for Architecture in Stone. Creating these state-of-the-art facilities will foster learning, creativity, and academic inquiry, allowing the galleries to connect deeply with MassArt’s curriculum and mission — and transform them into a “must visit” destination in what could now be called the “Art Museum District,” with the recently nearby. This is important to our campus, to future artists and designers, and to our promise to be an educational and cultural resource for the citizens of Massachusetts and beyond.
