A Lifetime of Art

Artwork by Brunnhilde S. Costanza

Formerly at the MATV Gallery through January, 2016

The MATV Gallery is pleased to exhibit a lifetime survey of the work of Brunnhilde S. Costanza (1924 -2008) through January 30, 2016 at MATV, Malden’s Media Center. The mother of Suzanne Costanza, a Malden resident, the exhibit is the first solo exhibit of the late artist’s work.

Stein Costanza lived and worked in New York City, throughout her life, raising a family of three children and teaching art in the New York City public schools at the junior high and high school level. Throughout her life, she explored ways to make art materials and the artistic process accessible to her students, to whom she taught in an often financially and time-challenged setting. Her commitment to public art education was expressed through her own experimentation with art forms that were relatively simple and inexpensive, yet were imbued with creativity, strong technique and varied expression.

Exhibit hours are Monday – Thursday, 10am – 9pm; Fridays, 10am – 6pm; and Saturday, 10am – 2pm. The gallery is located at MATV, Malden’s Media Center at 145 Pleasant Street.

The MATV Gallery in collaboration with Malden Arts will host a combined reception and art salon on Thursday, December 10 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. View the exhibit, meet the artist’s family, connect with other artists and art appreciators in the community and take part in a discussion around public art education and what happens to one’s artwork after one dies.

From Intern to “Master Yoda”

From student to intern to staff, Masio, current Volunteer and Intern Coordinator at MATV/UMA reflects on the journey to this role and how he approaches it. “It’s all about being empathetic, Understanding what people want and what their expectations are in trying to fulfill that. Having had interned and worked at places where the culture was anything but inclusive and warm, I want to make the intern volunteer experience very inviting and open. I want everyone to feel validated and allow them to grow into whatever they see themselves being. I see myself as Master Yoda and the interns as my full of promise padawans.”
