MICA Students visit MECA for collaborate project
A handful of students from the Maryland Institute College of Art are visiting the MECA campus this week as part of a class called "Road, Movies, and Travelogues." The class requires students to propose and carry out a road trip and create artwork based on their adventure.
With MICA professors Nadia Hironska and Eva Wylie, the group visited MECA for a series of activities: making a collaborative print with MECA professor Adriane Herman's students and visiting local printmaker David Wolfe's studio. Their visit was encouraged and organized by the ICA, Office of Public Engagement, and Printmaking Department.
Today that will be inviting the general public to the ICA from 1:00 to 3:00 to watch them finish a book project and speak about the project.
