The year is coming to a quick and sudden close, as students at MICA scramble to finish final projects and papers before the semester’s end. The Decker Library has seen a fair share of work being done on those papers, but this month the library is also proud to present an exhibition of student artwork.
Throughout May, the students in Katherine Mann’s Elements of Visual Thinking II course are showcasing an array of book-centric works. On display are card collections, extreme textured pages, a carousel book, humorous narratives and children’s stories.
Students whose work is displayed in this exhibit include:
Also on the lower level, the library is displaying artist books from past MICA students and art students across the country. Take a peek at Fox Hunting in Baltimore: The Map for Explorers and Baltimore Bound by former MICA student, Ida Elisabet Liffner, or Tale of the Last Star by MICA graduate Jodi Hoover.
So take a break from that paper and browse the works of your peers to celebrate the end of the year - it's almost here!
