Ron Wallace succumbed to his battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) on Wednesday, August 26, 2015.
Massachusetts College of Art Professor Emeritus Harris Barron ’54 (Ceramics) describes Ron Wallace as follows:
Ron Wallace was one of MassArt’s Studio for Interrelated Media’s most ambitious and significant undergraduates, a natural group leader whose intelligence, articulation and inventiveness folded into a plain and charming modesty made him easy to be loved, respected, and followed. A self-taught, highly sophisticated computer engineer-designer, he rose to become a valued Senior Consulting Engineer at AVID CORPORATION, whose management deployed him internationally as a representative of their leading edge technology used worldwide for film and video editing. His work won one of the company’s several Emmy Awards.
This past May, Wallace presented his beautifully crafted video work, Small Ocean—based on the succession of seasons at Walden Pond—in collaboration with John Holland, at the Pozen Center at the Massachusetts College of Art.
He is survived by his wife, Gloria, and his son, Benjamin. There will be a memorial gathering in the fall to mark his passing.
Here’s a link to the obituary that appeared on Boston.com.

The Big Question: What are the most interesting art and science ideas today? Wired UK.
interesting questions all but i think it’s far simpler than any of these, and also the oldest question around. How can humans of different religions, races, economic access, intelligence, and ability live together in peace on a planet with limited resources? That’s what i want to know. It is essentially a topic of art and science. We need both to answer the question.

“Now a decade into the 21st century the way we make, this teach, link understand, experience, and support the arts are in constant flux. In order to take the first steps towards addressing change in the arts sector it will be essential for the field to tap the ingenuity of its youngest professionals. Ironically, due to low pay, unreliable career paths, frustrating glass ceilings, and a lack of agency and autonomy, the arts sector is currently experiencing an exodus of Gen Xers and Millennials just when it needs their insights the most. 20UNDER40 brings the voices of these young arts leaders out of the margins and into the forefront of our cultural dialogue.
The first project of its kind, 20UNDER40 began with a call for chapter proposals that attracted over 300 submissions and generated buzz throughout the Internet. The selected authors within the anthology represent a diverse array of arts professionals including teaching artists, administrators, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, screenwriters, activists, visual artists, graduate students, professors, scientists, entrepreneurs—even a television show host. The 20 chapters discuss widely ranging, innovative ideas that intelligently tackle the challenges faced by the arts sector today while offering bold solutions and renewed hope for the future.
20UNDER40: Re-Inventing the Arts and Arts Education for the 21st Century kicks off a bold new dialogue concerning the future of the arts and arts education. Featuring 20 essays written by arts leaders under the age of 40,20UNDER40 sparks a unique conversation that highlights the most innovative visions for the evolution and survival of the arts in the 21st century. With online discussion forums attached to each chapter and a robust social media following, 20UNDER40 is more than a book, it’s a cultural movement fueling ideas, conversation, and progress.”

UdK Award for Interdisciplinary Art and Science
Berlin University of the Arts (UdK)
The UdK Berlin is one of the biggest, cost most traditional institutions of advanced artistic education in the world.

With its Colleges of Fine Art, information pills Design, Music and Performing Arts and the Central Institute of Continuing Education it is one of the few centres of advanced art education in Germany with university status.
Art and science are moving towards one another, discovering common issues and working methods. The creative, imaginative processes in the arts and sciences are similar, whereas the concrete realisation of their results tends to differ. Repeatedly, this difference is the source of productive tension and areas of friction. In all disciplines of the arts and sciences, further developments over recent decades have been characterised by mutual influences and efforts at differentiation. Today, traditional dividing lines between the spheres can no longer be maintained; they are being newly defined and presented in their permeability.
This competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists fine art, media, architecture, design, music, theatre, visual communication etc. and scientists to work between the priorities of the arts or between the arts and science.
