Untitled[edit]

I tried updating this page the best I could—including famous alumni as well as areas that are unique to MassArt. Please feel free to add your own!

I made some minor adjustments to the curriculum description; though there's no way to quantify how rigourous or challenging foundation year and critical studies respectively are, as a current student I can assure you that the popular concensus on both is "not very".

Mass Art --> This redirect is TOTALLY nonsensical. Please whoever is responsible, correct it[edit]

has nothing to do with massachussetts. It's a new slant on art, which discriminates between works of art of which only one instance exists (the Mona Lisa), and those that can be copied ad. lib. (e.g. films) and therefore that can travel all around the globe and be part of a global culture, not matter where they originate from. This redirect is total nonsense. See for example Noël Carroll (A Philosophy of Mass Art, 1998)----Anne97432 15:37, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

yeah, the book exists. its notable. but is the concept universally used? maybe. When this concept has an article written about it, a DAB at the top of this article will be enough. google search for: "mass art" -massachusetts -massart, gives 240K hits, but a lot of them still refer to this school. Write the article! "mass art" is a commonly used term for this school, regardless of its correctness. there are 9 usages of this term on WP that are not connected with this school, including Mr. Carroll.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:11, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Massart.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Massart.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:42, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Students please help fill it in! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.72.21.221 (talk) 04:19, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

New Partnership[edit]

Can anyone give a reference to the text of the New Partnership? It was described as groundbreaking and a precedent for other institutions of higher education, but what *is* it? I can find performance reports online [1], but not much about the agreement itself. -- Beland (talk) 02:08, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
