Where Did All This Art Come From?

If you’re a first year in Aldrich, you’ve probably walked by a few paintings on your way to class and wondered who, what and why are these up on our walls? As for second years, you’ve probably become accustomed and maybe even desensitized to the interesting and sometimes provocative pieces that also hang in the…

The Artist Within

As a member of the leadership teams for the Art Appreciation Society and the Entertainment and Media Club, it’s easy to speculate my love of the arts. Film, theatre, music, visual arts, you name it and I have an opinion about it. Maybe not so apparent is my interest in the arts, not just as…

Spirit of a Community:

Like many great gifts, this exhibition originates from the cultural powerhouse to our south that many of us feel a little too far away from: Pittsburgh.

Personal Impressions

Perhaps you have wondered what transpired in the art world to bring impressionist posters to the dorm walls of college women everywhere. The answer may lie in the current exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. A strict teleological interpretation of Impressionism leads us to understand this period as a natural progression toward…

HBS Women Make Art Their Business

Natasha Pearl (MBA ’89) took a typical post-HBS path, serving stints in American Express, Booz-Allen and Mercer Consulting, primarily focused on financial services marketing. However, when she took a sabbatical to work through a systematic career transition program, a very different idea emerged. Her career counselor, Mary Burton (an HBS MBA graduate), had her list…

Poetry Review: Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate

Poetry and HBS students typically go together like Microsoft Excel and art history majors. In his December 12 appearance at Harvard, the U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins reminded me how poetry can provide time for simple things business school can push aside: an easy laugh, a few minutes of reflection, or a little help getting…

Holiday Season Line Up

Even with the holidays (and finals) fast approaching, the Boston art scene hasn’t stopped thumping.

Some…

Editor-in-Chief's Farewell

Somehow it doesn’t feel quite right. It may say “Editor-in-Chief” under my name, but the drive behind this year’s edition of The Harbus most definitely came from someone else – a person who revamped the design, content, and attitude of The Harbus in more ways than most people recognize. That person is Nicholas Allen Will…

Shades of Gray

For most of our lives, we go home for the holidays alone or with an established significant other (plus or minus offspring). Less frequent are the audition trips, where you introduce a significant other. These cannot be taken lightly. Your partner will see your primary source for defining “family,” observe how you interact with long-term…

The Two Year (Old's) MBA

In the mornings, I pack my husband and two-year-old son off to their respective schools and sometimes, when the humor takes me, I wonder what would happen if they accidentally swapped places.

Moving forward, glancing back.

This undated (but probably ca. 1950) photograph shows the impressive facade of Baker Library. Though the upcoming renovation of the library will result in a state-of-the art structure that supports technological development and twenty-first century research needs, it will not compromise the architectural distinction of the building.

Baker Library Renovation Planned for Summer 2003

HBS Art Appreciation Society Hits Top Newbury Street Gallery

I know nothing about art. Okay, that’s perhaps not entirely accurate. In undergrad I took Introduction to Art History, but that was mostly because Anna Bordeau – she of the sexy French accent and flirtatious demeanor – was also taking it, and because alphabetical seating is a beautiful thing. Though one could argue that my…

Hitchcock and Suspense

What differentiates one director’s style from another?
