BALTIMORE—After the school year ends, MICA artists and community partners will continue exhibiting intriguing and engaging artwork. In partnership with the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, graduate dean emerita and founding director of MICA's Center for Race and Culture Leslie King-Hammond, Ph.D., has curated Ashe to Amen: African Americans and Biblical Imagery, an exhibition celebrating the remarkable wealth and breadth of Africa-American artists' interpretations of Biblical stories. On campus, MICA will present a variety of programing and once again serve as the anchor for Artscape, a role that includes hosting a special edition of MICA Art Market.
