Bitter Sweets: Holiday and Farewell

Dec 16 2016

To celebrate the holidays and all the hard work our MFAD students and faculty have put into this past Fall, a wonderful feast was had in our gallery. At the same time we also celebrated the departure of Esther Ro-Schofield, who for 13 years has been an integral member of the MFAD admin team and ultimately our Director of Operations (as well as Director of the Rome Typographic Workshop).

Esther is as extraordinary as an artist (painter, drawer, sculptor) as she is departmental manager — indeed we look to see great work coming off her easel. She will pursue a the creative career that she’s been building for the past decade. Esther you will be missed.
