Master of Arts in Community Arts students reflect on work with the community in Rosenberg Gallery exhibition
Posted 09.29.09 by The Center for Art Education
In June 2009, Master of Arts in Community Arts students embarked upon their formal education in the field of community arts. Central to their own learning, they taught art-making with youth in eight sites across Baltimore City. Simultaneously, they began to define their processes as individual community artists.
Each of them crossed the threshold to explore their relationship within the context of community, mapping the interface by:
- Identifying critical issues
- Forming new relationships
- Unpacking preconceptions
- Communicating hope
Enter/Face: Facing New Challenges with Community is a reflection on the challenges these students encountered with community related to education, youth development, racism, environmental concerns, public health and other issues of social justice. Together, they create a connective platform where they pose the metacognitive question: What is Community Art?
