This month two Milton graduates had their work showcased at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. Tom Curran’s ’81 film, Adrift, returned—back by popular demand—to the MFA in early December. The 56-minute documentary is Tom Curran’s first-person account of loss in an Irish-American family. The documentary, which won the directors award for best cinematography at the 11th Annual Woods Hole Film Festival was created from a mixture of super-8 home movies, contemporary interviews, and excellent cinematography. Adrift was created with help from a number of Milton alumni including: Llewelyn M. Smith ’72, writer; Jessica Lindley ’81, co-executive producer; and Jide Zeitlin ’81, executive producer. Adrift originally premiered at the MFA in August.
On December 4, Sarah Sze ’87 opened the museum’s second RSVPmfa exhibit. RSVP artists work among the collections and grounds of the MFA to create art that extends beyond the walls of the gallery. Sarah’s installation, located in the Museum’s West Wing Lobby, extends form the West Wing entrance to a second floor that is visible through a balcony. The piece is anchored on the second floor and sweeps into the barrel vault above and descending from a supporting column to the floor of the lobby. Sarah’s installation can be seen at the MFA through the spring of 2003.
