Museum Peace
 
As they prepare to wrap up their spring semester, students from MCC's Commonwealth Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa Honorary Society had the fortunate opportunity to take part in a guided tour of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston this week.
 
 
The museum was built by the Boston heriess and avid art collector in the 19th century, and served both as her home, Italianate style mansion and art museum. It is a unique museum featuring an eclectic collection of ancient, medieval, and modern works of art from all over the world including an award winning courtyard with a floor mosaic centerpiece from ancient Rome.
 
The group was led by Dr. David Kalivas, Director of the CHP and Advisor for PTK, and by all accounts was both an informative and enjoyable experience.
 
Professor Kalivas said it was a wonderful afternoon for the students and will likely become a regular semester event for the honors program starting in the Fall.

No doubt this was a great experience for all who participated!  The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is a favorite of mine....so rich with art and history!  A beautiful place to visit in Boston. Hats off to the Professor Kalivas for providing this opportunity to our Commonwealth Honors students. AND - check out the nice bus!  You all ride in style!

A gem of a museum, and as a former home, on a scale that is a very different than most museums for most of us! I'm certain that the students enjoyed and grew from the experience!
