About MICA

What Does This Vision Mean?

We at MICA envision a better world for everyone in which art and design thinking, creations, and interventions bring voice and equitable opportunities to groups affected by disparities; advance environmental, economic and social sustainability; and enhance individual lives.

For their unique roles in society, artists and designers are embraced by multiple sectors for optimal participation, and compensated in ways that are commensurate with the true worth of their creations and contributions.

Art, design, and creativity are transcendent forces. MICA believes that a better world for all is ultimately a more joyful world lifted by aesthetic power, imagination, and expression. As a campus community, we celebrate optimism, beauty, and playfulness, as much as we are characterized by reflective and mindful goals setting, hard work, and the rigorous pursuit of excellence and impact.
