Donor Stories

Through the generosity of our donors, we are 91% of the way to completing our fundraising goal for UNBOUND. Our donors give for myriad reasons, here, they share why they give in their own words:


The Barkans
 

"Mel and I invested in UNBOUND because we believe in and enthusiastically support the goals of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, its hard working students, and dedicated faculty. " - Hope Barkan

 

 


Patron in the galleries

 

 

"MassArt deserves a tip-top exhibition space to showcase tomorrow’s artists and designers. The new galleries will open its profile to Boston and grow the artistic conversation with our booming city." - Charlie Jobson

 

 


Rich Coffman

"Gabrielle and I support the campaign for the Bakalar & Paine Galleries because this space inspires unconventional artistic talent in ways that no other institution in New England can match. We love knowing we can always encounter new ideas and innovative art in the Galleries and around every corner on the MassArt campus." 
- Rich Coffman

 


Elissa Warner"The Bakalar & Paine Galleries have always been beautiful. They have been the site for incredible shows, experiences, and education for the surrounding communities for many decades. They also have serious limitations (climate control, accessibility for the public and art) and they lack a visible entrance for visitors. We can and must do better. It is now within our reach to more firmly establish these galleries as world-class sites for enjoying art, teaching young children about art, and educating the next generation of artists, designers, educators, and museum professionals. I am honored to be part of this mission and I welcome you to join." - Elissa Warner 

 

thanks to all our donors for their generous support
