This Month at Bard Graduate Center

Another academic year has closed and Bard Graduate Center once again celebrates the outstanding achievements of our latest graduates—fifteen master’s degree students who presented their qualifying papers and five doctoral candidates who successfully completed their dissertations. We wish them success as they embark on the next phase of their careers.

In the Gallery, the Focus Project series continues with exhibitions on Franz Boas and his collaborator George Hunt, and the graphic designer Jan Tschichold, who defined the “New Typography” movement of the interwar period. Also on view is A View from the Jeweler’s Bench. If you haven’t yet, please stop by before they close on July 7.
