For nearly 200 years, MICA has regularly reinvented itself to prepare its students to meet the unique challenges of their time. The world of the 21st century is global, diverse, and technologically driven. Within this dynamic, evolving landscape, opportunities for artists and designers are expanding exponentially. By crafting new ways to learn and apply knowledge through project-based learning, research, collaboration, and INNOVATION, we are defining THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE.

Antionette Hawkins '11, Painting

Antionette Hawkins was born in Baltimore, Maryland. She received an early education at Baltimore City and Baltimore County schools. Currently, she is a graduate student at MICA pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Teaching. Much of Hawkins’ work is inspired by themes of identity and popular culture. She uses specific objects as catalysts to reveal her personal experiences and encounters with identity, such as being ostracized from her own race, and being labled an “oreo cookie.” Experimenting with her own “branding” of items, influenced by racist context, she plans to further explore these areas.
