The big picture

Aug. 9, 2019 | Jocelyn Shaw, KHC'43, paid us a visit this morning to present one of her beautiful paintings to the school.
From the names etched in the wainscot panelling to the traditional portraits that adorn Ross Hall, the walls around campus are a testament to the long and rich history of our school. Through the years, many of our alumni have invested in this history by donating artwork to be displayed in our academic buildings. Today we welcomed two alumni artists, Jocelyn Shaw, KHC'43, and Ann Mitchell, KHC'53, both longtime supporters of the arts at BCS. Back in 1991, Jocelyn worked with Patrick Stoker, BCS'38, to establish the Stoker Arts Festival, a tradition that has remained a key part of arts education and student life at BCS to this day. She also painted the portrait of Shirley Stoker, KHC'46, the first woman to chair the board of BCS, which currently hangs in our dining hall. Ann is also a prolific painter whose artwork is displayed in the Family Room in School House. During their visit, they toured Mitchell Family House and Jocelyn generously donated her painting 'Out to Dry' to the school to be displayed there.

We love seeing our alumni on Moulton Hill. If you're vacationing in the area this summer, give us a call and we'd be delighted to tour you around the school!
