Hello everyone and welcome back!
I wanted to take a quick moment and introduce myself: my name is Cailee Mellen, and I will be the new Art Ed Department Assistant (aka the new Deborah)! I know I have amazingly huge shoes to fill in this position, but I am so excited to be a part of the vibrant community here at MassArt.
How about a few fun facts about me to break the ice? I grew up half in Missouri, half in Southern California, but I have called Boston home now for about seven years after graduating from BU in 2011. While there, I studied Art History & Archaeology, and I recently completed a term of graduate study in the UK focusing on Medieval Archaeology and Historic Preservation. I have also lived abroad in France and Cambodia. My favorite TV show is Game of Thrones (which I can nerdily talk about for hours); my favorite artists are Michelangelo and Delacroix; and I have a secret/not-so-secret love of musical theatre.
I am really looking forward to meeting everyone over the coming weeks, so please feel free to stop by the office and say hi!
