Rob Moore
Rob Moore taught at Massachusetts College of Art and Design for 26 years and made an indelible impression on those who studied with him—or even those who just passed him in the hall. He was "the kind of a teacher students love to hate—charismatic, authoritative, charming." He was a well known painter, and his work is still collected today. Rob died of AIDS on December 31, 1992 at the age of 55.

That such a vibrant and dynamic person, artist and teacher as Rob should have had his life cut short is truly a great loss. He had so much to contribute with his own painting as well as through the work of his students. He died much too soon.

With thanks to Nancy Natale.
