The current exhibition “Fresh Ink” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston combines the old and the new in Chinese ink paintings. In this dialogue between the contemporary and the classical, leading artists from China were invited to create new works inspired by the MFA’s classical collection. The new works and the masterpieces they refer are displayed in juxtaposition in the new Gund Gallery. A reminder — all BU students are entitled to free admission to the Museum with the student ID. Sign-up for one of the faculty-led trips to the MFA, or take a trip out there yourself — bring some friends! — and take in this thought-provoking show.
Welcome!The Core Blog is a hub for information and media related to the CAS Core Curriculum at Boston University. It will be updated regularly, with photo galleries, interviews, links to related reading online, news of events or activities, and other kinds of content that help connect our Core people—prospective, current, and former students—with each other. You can stop by here once a week to scroll through the posts, or make this your homepage in order to keep your finger on the pulse of the Core. Either way, we hope you find this to be a pleasant way to strengthen your connection with the great people, the great books, and the great questions we encounter in the Core.
