Annual Exhibition's Proceeds Benefit Student Scholarship, Alumni Artists
Posted 06.15.10 by MICA Communications
MICA's popular annual tradition expands to a permanent online exhibition, 15x15/365 Online Alumni Gallery and Sale, featuring works by MICA alumni. Throughout the year, various artists and themes will be highlighted with curated online exhibitions. The exhibition presents more than 250 pieces of art from 72 alumni participants. Click here to view the gallery.
Each exhibition will become a permanent feature on the MICA website 365 days a year. Each artist may submit up to five pieces of their work per enrollment fee, which will be posted for one year after their registration date. Any money made from a sale of the work will go directly to the artist.
To submit work for the rolling registration, visit www.mica.edu/15x15 for forms and information. There is a $15 enrollment fee which will be directly placed into the scholarship fund. This scholarship specifically benefits current students and is awarded annually to a meritorious student of any major.
"The College looks forward to promoting MICA alumni and their work by exposing them to a larger audience for a longer period of time," said Aaron Talbot '09, Alumni & Parent Relations coordinator. "In past years, the live gallery exhibition displayed artwork for only 22 days. It is through this promotion that MICA hopes to raise higher scholarship support for current MICA students."
