"MassArt College of Art and Design on Huntington Avenue recently unveiled a new mural in the Atrium of the Design and Media Center, at the heart of campus. Intrepid, was created with members of Boston based GN Crew, MassArt’s inaugural Tyrone Maurice Adderley Artists in Residence, in collaboration with MassArt students.
"Few contemporary artists have left Boston under such public, or such fraught, circumstances as Steve Locke (MFA, Painting, '01).

A MassArt graduate, he was a fixture in the city’s gallery scene, later producing high-profile works for the Boston Public Library and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Even when she explores controversial themes such as gender fluidity, racism, and social justice, her work is so playful it wouldn’t raise eyebrows in a children’s museum."
For Portland artist Sa’rah Melinda Sabino, her show last summer at the Portland Art Museum’s Aux/Mute Gallery felt like a big risk. “It was a very personal journey,” she said. “I was quite scared because it was my first time even talking about being mixed race, like out loud outside of my journal.” But it was a risk that paid off. At the opening reception, people of color repeatedly told her “thank you for making this work — I finally feel seen.” And for Sabino, “it was sort of an indescribable feeling because I had never felt seen myself before.
