    December 1, 2014
    Stepanek is Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts as well as a former student of the late Professor Heuser. She is the co-curator and originator of a new exhibition opening at the MFA on October 12th. Entitled Goya: Order and Disorder, it will be the largest Goya exhibition in North America in a quarter century. The exhibition explores the fertile territory between order and disorder to consider Goya’s output from noble portraits to the chaos of war and the mayhem of the bull ring and will include several works that have never been shown in public and/or in the United States.

  • How I Leveraged a Great Career from a Fine Arts Degree featuring David Mayo

    September 23, 2014
    It has been said that fine or liberal arts curricula should include training in the art of eloquently asking, “Would you like fries with that?” Career-oriented students (and parents) often consider these areas of study optional or even “recreational.” David Mayo would argue that allowing yourself to pursue knowledge in the abstract is both fulfilling and valuable. There are always risks when following your heart in your choice of study, but there are always career options for those who apply the most important aspect of their education—creativity. Mayo will be speaking about his personal journey after earning his bachelor of fine arts degree in sculpture—and, no, he has never uttered the phrase “Would you like fries with that” professionally.
