The Baltimore Sun featured MICA classes that work in the community through a front page article titled MICA students interact with canvas of urban reality, on April 19. The Finding Our Wings program led by Kirsten Hollander and the Design Coalition class led by Ryan Clifford are highlighted. (Click here to read the story.)
"The program, Finding Our Wings, is just one example of how MICA is running against stereotypes of art school. ... [Rather] they're people who use aesthetic skills to understand and help the neighborhoods around them," Sun reporter Childs Walker wrote.
The story includes a roundup of recent class projects that involve community work as well as mentions that MICA's M.A. in Community Arts (MACA) program was the first of its kind in the country. Ray Allen, vice president for academic affairs and provost, was quoted in the article.Image caption: MICA student Christopher Muccioli and a local designer at a reuse workshop at the Men's Center; Design Coalition class taught by Ryan Clifford.
