Lyon graduate and former art major, Matt Boyd, ’12, was recently hired as an education specialist at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, in Lansing, Michigan after completing his MFA in print media at the prestigious Cranbrook in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
The Broad Museum is housed in a building designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid. Boyd will put his art major and liberal arts education to use as he will research work from the museum’s permanent collection to aid in the creation of arts programming and education. This position builds on his experience as an educator at Crystal Bridges, a position he held after graduating from Lyon and before attending Cranbrook.
"The education I received in the art program at Lyon College has been the foundation for much of the accomplishments I’ve had early on in my career," said Boyd. "By providing an environment that is both challenging and supportive, I was able to progress my natural talents and strengthen the problem solving abilities that have been crucial to much of my success."
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
