In a piece about smart ways to invest in furniture for your home, the Washington Post focused on MICA as a great place to buy original art by students and undiscovered artists. Designer and Post contributer Dana Tydings suggested buying a few small pieces to hang together, or saving for one or two large statement pieces. The online article also included a photo gallery, which featured the work of MICA alumna Cynthia Beth Rubin '77 (MFA in Painting).
