The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College has acquired a rich trove of Coptic textiles, and an extensive library of accompanying volumes, from collectors Donald and Barbara Tellalian of Newton, Mass. The Tellalian Collection—which comprises thirty-four Late Antique/Coptic textiles from the fourth to eighth century—is significant due to the quality, importance, and conservation of the textiles, as well as the related comprehensive library of 129 books and folios, many of which are rare volumes. The Tellalians chose the McMullen to house these important works to ensure that they are accessible to future generations of students, scholars, and the public. More from BC News.
Students from nearly 20 area colleges and universities, including Boston College senior Walker Halstad, will read their original work at the 2018 Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival, to be hosted by Boston College today. Halstad, an English major and Hispanic Studies minor enrolled in the University’s Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program, submitted a poem titled “The Elements.” A chapbook of poetry written by participating students will be published in conjunction with the event. Poet Jennifer Barber, founding and current editor of the literary journal Salamander, will begin the festival with a keynote address. More from BC News.
