The Mind’s Eye is a research and praxis initiative of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts that explores a wide range of cultural topics, socio-political inquiries, theoretical concerns, and creative practices from within an interdisciplinary framework.

The Mind’s Eye aims to stand as a model of the civic engagement and critical thinking constitutive of a liberal arts education by engaging in scholarly and creative pursuits that transcend disciplinary boundaries.

In collaboration with neighboring institutions, like MASS MoCA, The Mind’s Eye aspires to expand the cultural footprint of the southern Berkshires by creating innovative programming and events for local and global audiences alike.
