The Marlboro Record

News from the Board


In October, renowned artist and Marlboro trustee Wolf Kahn gave a lecture at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center titled Planning and Spontaneity in Art. Sponsored by Marlboro College, Wolf’s talk ranged from pastels to paintings and from the sweeping landscapes of Vermont to his studio in New York. Wolf’s rich, expressive body of work represents a synthesis of his modern abstract training with Hans Hofmann, the palette of Matisse, Rothko’s sweeping bands of color, and the atmospheric qualities of American Impressionism. Here he is seen sharing a quite moment with President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell on another occasion in October, his 80th birthday, also held at BMAC.

Tom Goddard resigned from the board after serving as a trustee for decades, during two separate terms—once in the 1980s and again in the 2000s. At its meeting in May, the board recognized Tom’s extraordinary contributions to Marlboro. “Among his many contributions was his perseverance with respect to regularizing building maintenance and improvements,” said Dean Nicyper, chairman. “I know the entire Marlboro community joins in expressing our enormous appreciation to Tom for all he has done for Marlboro.” Kevin Wenck ’81, who joined the board as an alumni trustee, has also resigned.
