Fine Arts Featured Story
Thirty-four members of the Boston College class of 2015 were awarded Fine Arts degrees on May 18th – twelve in Art History, eleven in Film Studies, and eleven in Studio Art. Ten Fine Arts graduates received Latin honors of cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude, and Phi Beta Kappa inducted four graduating Fine Arts majors into its Omicron of Massachusetts chapter on May 17th. Read more about our 2015 graduates. Above: Kenya Danino's graduation cap.
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.
