• In Tribute to Harris Barron

    by  • January 16, 2018 • News

    On January 20th MassArt will pay tribute to Harris Barron and his incredible legacy. Harris was a mentor to so many in the art community here in Boston and beyond. He founded MassArt’s Studio for Interrelated Media known as SIM. It was the first of its kind in the U.S.

    He made the world a better place and helped so many become who they are today.

    He is missed by all who knew him.

    I encourage folks to read his full obituary:


    And to also see the website he has with his amazing wife Ros Barron:


    We will miss you Eagle Air, but know your spirit is soaring and keeping a watchful eye over all of us who hold you dear.

MALC works to ensure that artists have a permanent place at the policy making table.
