MAAE and SPCS Showcase Student Works
Posted 07.05.11 by MICA communications
MICA will showcase two exhibitions this summer, featuring works from students in the M.A. in Art Education program and the School for Professional and Continuing Studies. Both shows present various works through which students represented their learnings.
• WHAT: M.A. in Art Education (MAAE) Exhibition
During their two summer studio residencies and online studio experiences in the MAAE program, students have developed a conceptually related body of work that investigates a chosen issue of deep personal interest.
The M.A. in Art Education Exhibition presents the results of these visual investigations. The art in this exhibition is complemented by the research investigations MAAE candidates-who are also full-time art educators-have conducted about their students' artmaking processes. These completed research studies are also on exhibition. Participating artists: Molly Campbell, Mark Halcott, Richard Kim, Emily Kruszynski, Leah Prischak and Lizanne Stafford.
WHEN: Monday, July 25-Friday, July 29
WHERE: Bunting Center: Pinkard Gallery, 1401 W. Mount Royal Ave.
• WHAT: School for Professional and Continuing Studies (SPCS) Student Exhibition
This exhibition is a glimpse into the work of students who expand their artmaking with classes in MICA's continuing studies program. The exhibition includes drawing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, jewelry and ceramics.
WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 4-Thursday, Aug. 11, closing reception Thursday, Aug. 11, 6-8 p.m.
