LYNK Curatorial Intern Izzy Chen ‘21 is spending her time at the #mhcartmuseum researching & cataloging the work of Japanese-French artist Tsuguharu Foujita (1886–1968). It’s always exciting when students are able to directly engage with works in the collection!

Matisse Education Fellows Jessica Lazzar ‘21 & Sommer Byers ‘21 have been leading close looking sessions and helping students create their own self-portraits. No better way to kick off the summer!
