The paintings of Pat Falco '10 BFA History of Art and Illustration almost define him as an anti-formalist, or at the very least, indifferent to the usual expected painterly concerns.

MassArt alumna Masliza Manshoor '97 BFA Graphic Design and her sister inspire creativity and enact social change with their company CreaTee. DIY T-shirt activity kits encourage children to create wearable art, and workshops led by the founders center around the importance of self-esteem and anti-bullying.
Professor Emeritus Bill Hannon wrote an Op Ed in The Boston Globe, writing "MassArt is one of the quiet cultural jewels that contributes to the state’s economy in boundless ways."
Build Therefore Your Own World featuring the work of MassArt alumnus Sam Durant '86 BFA Sculpture opens at Blum & Poe Gallery in Los Angeles. Art Daily notes that "Durant continues his excavation of marginalized American histories, unearthing counter storylines to the historical canon."
