The work the group has done for the last year is about to come to fruition.

The exhibition opens on Saturday, November 12th, and was recently covered by The Boston Globe and The New York Times. This exhibition will be the first in the Americas of the work of the newly discovered 17th-century Flemish painter, Michaelina Wautier, the leading female artist of her time and place. "The installation is accompanied by the first volume of the digital publication series CNA Studies, edited by Professor Jeffrey Muller and with essays by the six organizing students: Yannick Etoundi, Sophie Higgerson, Emily Hirsch, Regina Noto, Mohadeseh Salari Sardari and Dandan Xu" (MFA). 

The collaboration represents a major initiative linking Brown with the Museum of Fine Arts, and in particular with the Center for Netherlandish Art, recently established in the Museum.
