Since the beginning of the academic year Holy Cross has been celebrating coeducation, and on the weekend of March 22 to 24 the spotlight will focus specifically on the visual arts.

The department will host a reunion weekend, titled “Muses on the Mount,” that will offer a broad spectrum of events featuring artists and professionals in collecting, arts management, exhibiting, and education. In conjunction with this program, the Cantor Art Gallery will hold an exhibition of art, “Spark,” March 14 to April 12 featuring the work of eight alumnae, several of whom will be in attendance at the reunion.

Students will be active participants in all aspects of the weekend, and Virginia Raguin, professor of art history and organizer of the weekend reunion, says the events will offer both students and alumni good opportunities to network.

Raguin says that it’s impossible to select a highlight because everything in the schedule is significant.

On March 22, a “Paths in the Arts” panel discussion in Rehm Library, will feature several successful alumni working in the field of art. Panelists include Jay A. Clarke ’88, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass.; Jennifer DePrizio ’97, director of visitor learning the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston; Anna Tobin D’Ambrosio ’87, director and chief curator at Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, N.Y.; Charlotte N. Eyerman ’87, director of FRAME (French Regional and American Museum Exchange) for North America in Los Angeles; and Cari Borja ’93, Ph.D., a clothes designer in Berkley, Calif.

At a dinner in the Hogan Campus Center immediately following the discussion, alumnae will be treated to a fashion show featuring the work of Borja, who sells her clothing through several retail stores throughout the Bay Area.

Other programming will include classes to attend on Friday, a roundtable of professionals in the visual arts, breakfast and a visit to the Cantor Art Gallery to the see the “Spark” exhibition, and special tours and a lecture on collecting contemporary art at the Worcester Art Museum,. On March 24, alumni are invited to visit the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

All Holy Cross alumni and guests are welcome. To register, please visit the “Muses on the Mount” website. While there is a rolling registration, anyone interested in attending the dinner on March 22 is encouraged to register by March 15.
