Reception and Graduate Studio Center Open House: Sunday, Oct. 21, 2–4 p.m.
Invited: Celebration Station, the culmination of the two-part series, will kick off the re-opening of MICA's newly renovated Graduate Studio Center. The exhibition will fill two gallery floors with celebratory-themed artworks- many commissioned for the exhibition-as well as documentation of the 10 Station North business installations. Nine international and local artists will take part in the first-ever show in MICA's new galleries, featuring icons of celebration--colorful streamers and interactive games-to highlight both the 10 selected sites and the Station North community at large.
"Invited: Celebration Station is meant to commemorate Station North's history while trying to inclusively involve the district's diverse community of businesses, arts, nonprofit organizations and residents," said Allison Gulick, M.F.A. in Curatorial Practice candidate and co-curator.
