June 2014: Robert Gardner, 1925-2014

We are deeply saddened about the passing of Robert Gardner. Bob was the director of the Carpenter Center from 1976 to 1984 and again in the early 1990s. His inquisitive nature, creativity and energy as a documentary filmmaker, anthropologist and educator continue to resonate at the Carpenter Center and Department of Visual and Environmental Studies. In 1986 he established the Josep Lluis Sert Practitioner in the Arts, leaving a legacy that each year provides generous support to a visiting artist who works closely with Harvard University students. Bob Gardner will be greatly missed.

Read more about Gardner's legacy in his obituary in the New York Times.
