Family Portraits: East Baltimore

Medium: Photograph

Funded by an Office of Community Engagement Grant, Family Portraits: East Baltimore provided free professional portraits to families who otherwise might not pursue or be able to afford them. These families live in East Baltimore, the neighborhood near MICA PLACE (Programs Linking Art, Culture, and Education), a center for community arts and social design where students live, work, and learn.
