Fine Arts Featured Story
During the Fall semester, eight students in ARTH3370 worked alongside McMullen Museum Director and Fine Arts Professor Nancy Netzer and Classics Professor Gail Hoffman to organize an exhibition, Roman in the Provinces, which will be on view at the McMullen Museum during the spring semester. Bettina Riddle '15 (Art History) chronicles the students' involvement for this semester's featured story. At left: Eastern Mediterranean mosaic with Personifications of Pleasure and Wealth, 6th century CE (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Gift of George D. and Margo Behrakis, 2006.848).
Her advisor Professor Michael Mulhern describes Kenya Danino '15 as "fearless," with a "sort of interior compass and drive that makes the job of working with her both easy and demanding." A Studio Art major, Kenya is not only a graphic artist but also a writer, combining these skills with her knowledge about the history of animation and graphic novels to create dazzling stories in which she explores some of life's important and complex themes. Despite the serious content of her work, Kenya never abandons a sense of fun, employing animal characters and skillful draftsmanship to engage an audience spanning all ages. She works as a visual development artist for several start-up animation companies, and has already had her worked exhibited in New York City gallery. Read Kenya's story.
