In addition to their close work with a deeply talented and committed arts faculty, Middlesex students also have the opportunity to work with visiting professional artists throughout the year. This winter, our artists were thrilled to learn from not one but two extraordinary visiting artists. Gordon D.

As we move into March – and away from winter - the MxAA Gala Benefit and Auction reminds us to “Think Spring”.  If spring itself isn’t compelling to you, we hope that our upcoming event at the Four Seasons Boston is!

The early part of the evening will be devoted to the Silent and Super Silent Auctions which will take place in Aujourd ‘hui – a bright room richly appointed with wooden columns and built in wine cases....

A fluent Persian linguist, an authority on Iran, and a seasoned diplomat, Alan Eyre ’76 surprisingly allowed that he had never imagined such a career for himself in his days as a Middlesex student. In fact, he once viewed public service as “the flip side of fun” – something that “should” be done, “preferably by someone else,” he quipped. Instead, over the course of 33 years working for the U.S. Government, Alan has found a fulfilling career that has immersed him in different cultures while...
