The J. Robert Barth, SJ, Award for Excellence in the Arts will be given each year at Commencement to a senior who has made an outstanding contribution to Boston College in the fine or performing arts, such as music, theater, dance, film or other visual media.
Fr. Barth served as A&S dean from 1988 until this past summer, when he stepped down to join the English Department faculty. His administration saw a renewed emphasis on the arts at BC, including the development of music and theater majors and the opening of the McMullen Museum of Art.
