BALTIMORE--Community Art--Works in Progress highlights the Master of Arts in Community Arts (MACA) students' recent work, Tuesday, Dec. 8-Friday, Dec. 18 in Fox 4th floor hallway galleries, Fox Building (1303 W. Mount Royal Ave.). Each artist explores a visual thesis project that represents personal growth, exploring the role of a community artist and his or her relationship with an AmeriCorps community-based residency site. Grounded in principles of social justice, the artwork provides a platform for the multiplicity of diverse voices in the community to come to life, as understood and interpreted by the artist.
MICA's galleries, which are free and open to the public, are open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon-5 p.m. They are closed on major holidays. For more information, call 410-225-2300.
