Cultural Architects: Curators From MICA are Enriching – and Redefining – Their Field

The pioneering MFA in Curatorial Practice at MICA — the first of its kind in the US — is a hotbed of invention. Its students deliberately seek alternative models of exhibition-building, with the goal to better engage audiences and expand the roles curators play in their communities, and with a deliberate eye on social justice. Alumni from the program have gone on to meet that challenge, and in Baltimore, they’re considered some of the city’s most noteworthy creative leaders.

Several of the program’s alumni as well as a MICA faculty member were recently profiled in The New Art Examiner, which lauded their “union of cultural and intellectual scope, ethical awareness, and inexhaustible commitment to their causes.” Below is a listing of the curators and faculty featured within the story.
