BALTIMORE--The public is invited to an Open House and tours of The Gateway, Maryland Institute College of Art's (MICA) brand new student life and residence center, 1601 Mount Royal Avenue.
The event, which takes place Sunday, Aug. 24 from 2-4 p.m., is the only opportunity to tour Baltimore's newest architectural landmark as the upper residential floors will not be open to the public after MICA students move in the following week.
