  • Featured student artwork: Communication Designer junior Janina Yutkins-Kennedy developed this GIF for her Advertising Design class.

    The purpose was to use funny and relatable characters to change the conversation about mental health stigma - sharing that "it's okay not to be okay" and that feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, etc. are normal and shouldn't be looked down upon.

  • MassArt is fortunate to attract world-renowned artists as visiting lecturers. Each spring, the Printmaking Department hosts the Master Print Series, where an artist works with students to develop a concept that evolves into artwork.

    This year, MassArt invited Dr Lakra to campus. Dr. Lakra is a renowned tattoo artist based in Oaxaca, Mexico. Under his pseudonym, loosely translating as "Dr Delinquent," he draws over vintage printed materials and found objects rather than skin, manipulating images of pin-up girls, 1940s Mexican businessmen, luchadores, and Japanese sumo wrestlers.

    Thank you Dr Lakra for collaborating with us last week!

  • Women's History Month: Featuring MassArt Auction artist Rachel Perry.

    Rachel Perry is a three-time recipient of the Mass Cultural Council Award for Excellence - only artist to ever win in three separate disciplines: Photography, Drawing, and Sculpture.

    For the "Lost in My Life" series, Rachel turned sculptures created as discrete works into set-ups in the photography studio where she was literally absorbed in her work. The series references the endless organizing, cleaning and shopping that form the business of living.

    Rachel's work is held in the Museum of Fine Arts, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the MIT List Visual Arts Center, and in many private collections.

    This piece, "Lost in My Life (Price Stickers with Bag), 2009," will be up for bid at the Auction on April 27!
