Bentley University Centennial Exhibit
January 17 – March 5,  March 2, 2017

Opening Reception
Wednesday, January 18 at 12:30 p.m.
Remarks by trustee emeritus and Centennial Committee chairman George Fantini ‘64

Opening on Tuesday, January 17th is the second in a series of three Centennial exhibits in the RSM Art Gallery. The Bentley Campus: From Boston to Waltham traces the university’s history from a small room in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood to the sprawling suburban campus we know today. Find out what life was like for Bentley students in the early decades of the 20th century, discover how Bentley’s leaders made the bold decision to move to Waltham, and get a glimpse of “Cedar Hill” before our now iconic buildings were constructed.

A wealth of new video content from the Bentley Archives will premiere with this exhibit. Gallery visitors can use the new interactive viewing tablet to watch founder Harry C. Bentley give a speech, see construction workers lay foundation for the Waltham campus, and view what the dormitories looked like in the 1980’s.

George Fantini ‘64, trustee emeritus and Centennial Committee chairman, will make remarks at the opening reception for the exhibit on Wednesday, January 18 at 12:30 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served. We hope you can join us!

An online version of this exhibit is available on the Bentley Archives website.
