Numerous gallery spaces campus-wide are devoted to undergraduate exhibitions organized by academic departments, including the 2nd floor gallery in Fox Building; the Ground Floor and Woodward galleries in the Main Building; the 3rd and 4th floor and hallway galleries in Brown Center; and the Illustration Gallery in Bunting Center. A display area on the 1st floor of Fox Building is reserved for work by undergraduate and graduate art education students, and hallway display cases on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Main Building also display student work in progress throughout the semester.
In addition, two galleries are dedicated to the Student Space Gallery program--a juried series of solo student exhibitions administered through the Student Activities office and run entirely by students. Students selected for this program mount professional solo exhibitions. The Pinkard Student Space Gallery in Bunting Center (216 square feet/ 52 linear feet) is located adjacent to Pinkard Gallery, facing Decker Library. The Piano Gallery (approximately 200 square feet / approximately 46 linear feet) is located on the first floor of Meyerhoff House, immediately off of the College's main dining area.
All student exhibitions are featured in the College's magazine-style Juxtapositions event calendar, mailed nationwide six times a year.
The outstanding quality and quantity of on-campus exhibition opportunities for graduate students are a hallmark of the MICA program. Numerous exhibitions each year, including the Juried Master’s Exhibition, are dedicated to the work of first- and second-year graduate students. Thesis exhibitions are hung in the 1,200-square-foot Graduate Thesis Gallery, and during the spring thesis exhibition season, all of MICA’s galleries are devoted to display a substantial body of work by each student completing graduate study at MICA.
The nearby presence of many independent galleries and art institutions that focus on the work of emerging artists make Baltimore an outstanding place for artists to build a regional exhibition experience and their résumé. MICA graduate students and recent graduates regularly exhibit, screen, or perform their work at Maryland Art Place (MAP), Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), The Creative Alliance, Gallery Four, C. Grimaldis Gallery, Gallerie Francoise et ses Freres, Schiavone Edward Contemporary Art, Gallery Imperato, MicroCineFest, Maryland Film Festival, Camslam Area 408, Minàs Gallery, Craig Flinner Gallery, West North Gallery, and The Contemporary Museum. The greater Baltimore area and in Washington, D.C., offer many other exhibition opportunities as well. MICA graduate students are exceptionally well represented in major annual curated exhibitions at such galleries as Connor Contemporary in Washington.
