Whitney Sherman '71, chair of MICA's illustration department, and graphic design alumnus Oliver Munday '07 were two of eight illustrators from across the country who were asked by the New York Times Op-Ed editors to spend an hour on a summer afternoon surveying the scene at local water fountains. Their contributions appear in the Aug. 14 edition of the Times.
Sherman contributed observations and an illustration from fountains at the Towson Town Center near Baltimore. Munday spent an hour at the National Zoo in Washington.
