Event highlighted community art work throughout Baltimore
On July 30, donors and friends of MICA's Community Art Corps program joined Community Art Corps students, nonprofit partners and staff to celebrate the accomplishments of our 2008-2009 program.
In the past year, more than 1,000 young people and adults have explored community issues and themes using visual art. Seven hundred-fifty volunteers have stepped up to assist in strengthening organizations throughout Baltimore. About 2,500 people have attended public events designed to engage a broad audience in building community throughout the city.
Hosted in conjunction with Connecting the Dots: Life in the Community Art Corps, an exhibition of artwork created by program participants, the event offered MICA President Fred Lazarus an opportunity to introduce new Community Art Corps Coordinator Frankie Gamber to our friends in the corporate, foundation and government funding community, and for friends and donors alike to meet and talk with our dynamic Community Art Corps members.
