Art on the Brain: A Conversation with Professor Sue Barry
Ellen Alvord

This fall, Mount Holyoke Professor of Biological Sciences Sue Barry taught her groundbreaking course “Art, Music, and the Brain” in the Museum for the last time before her retirement from teaching. Her students—along with the entire MHCAM staff—will miss having an art-savvy neurobiologist in our midst. 

Oh Miami!
John Stomberg

Florence Finch Abbott Director John Stomberg describes his recent visit to Art Basel Miami Beach with members of MHCAM's Friends of Art. John traveled to balmy Miami and first explored the fair on his own, making note of interesting and eye-catching artworks. He then lead the group—made up of more than 30 Mount Holyoke alumnae and Museum donors—on a two-day expedition through the hundreds of gallery booths, collections, and exhibitions that comprise this annual, art-world extravaganza, stopping along the way for illuminating discussions about his favorite discoveries.
