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.

Created by Dan DenDanto who has been cleaning, articulating and restoring whale skeletons professionally since 1993. He strives to create dynamic exhibits which convey more about the animals’ lives than their deaths.  Dan’s knowledge of whale anatomy and extensive experience in the field contribute to his extraordinary ability to accurately display the remains of these magnificent creatures. Dan currently directs The North Atlantic Fin Whale Catalogue while pursuing studies in fin whale population genetics and demographic ecology. Dan's research focuses on life history data, including photographic-identification, genetic, and sightings information to investigate interactions between individual fin whales in the Northern Gulf of Maine
