Museum Tours:  Peg Dwyer is stepping down as our beloved docent but has found an excellent replacement, in her words, “Sharon Bazarian '78, a political science major and a free-lance photographer for over twenty years who photographed Elton John and Sting during her twenty-three year career. Sharon is also a docent at the Museum of Fine Arts. She participates in the Art Careers Night in the Museum sponsored by the Arts Council and the Career Center. Her four children are BC graduates.”

Peg describes the exhibit: 

“’RAPHAEL SORIANO: The Artist as Mystic,’ curated by Elizabeth Goizueta of the Romance Language Department. Soriano (1920-2015) was a global figure in the 20th Century who left Cuba for America in 1962 after the 1959 Revolution. The exhibit traces the development of his work through the decades.”

The titles of the Program Meetings, the topics of the Research Seminars, and the book choices of the Retired Faculty Book Club may be found on the Activities and Events page.
