Artists Paint chandelier of doors for Girls Hope Home
Posted 09.27.10 by MICA communications
A group of MICA community members heeded the call when ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition producers asked for artists to volunteer their skills for a new home and facility in Baltimore for Boys Hope Girls Hope, an organization designed to offer better opportunities to young men and women from at-risk families.
The MICA artists were heavily involved in the execution of the "Ty Challenge," working closely with the design stars on Ty Pennington's special project, the centerpiece of the house--a chandelier of doors representing pathways and hopes for the girls who will live in the house.
Also, Sebastian Martorana '08 (Rinehart School of Sculpture) created a marble bust of Shaq used to conceal the girls' secret hideaway.
The episode aired Sept. 26. To watch the full episode, visit ABC's website here.
