More about December Commencement 2009
Forty-one MICA undergraduate students received B.F.A. degrees from College President Fred Lazarus on Dec. 18 in Brown Center's Falvey Hall. Commencement speaker Colin Campbell '04, host of the PBS series, Time Team America, challenged the students to "create with a reckless abandon for the rest of your lives. You guys are some of the best trained artists of your generation. If you don't create, I don't know who will." Fiber student Peter Henry Ellis Boyce '09 delivered the undergraduate address. In his speech, he said it feels good to be set up in this critical place -- MICA -- that is diplomatic between creative people and the world around us. Students received B.F.A. degrees in art history, theory and criticism; drawing; environmental design; fiber; general fine arts; graphic design; illustration; interdisciplinary sculpture; painting; photography; printmaking; and video and film arts.
