2015 MEDAL AWARD HONORING JOHN BALDESSARI - MAY 18

The SMFA Medal is awarded annually to individuals who have made a significant and lasting impact on the art world. The gala—which includes a seated dinner and silent auction—raises vital funds for scholarships and educational opportunities for SMFA students. The Medal Award was first presented in 1996 on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In the time since, the School has paid tribute to some of the most noteworthy artists and influential art patrons of our time.
