MICA's location at the heart of the East Coast Art Corridor makes it easy to view art, to connect with galleries and museum professionals, to find internships, and to explore the rich cultural resources of the area.

Plus Baltimore is close to every kind of outdoor activity.

At the Heart of the East Coast Art Corridor

In Baltimore you have easy access to the collections of the finest museums and galleries in the country and to the most exciting work by emerging artists to be found anywhere. MICA offers regular, inexpensive bus trips to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia. By train, Washington is just 40 minutes south; New York is 2 1/2 hours north.

Proximity to Maryland's Great Outdoors

When you need a break from work, campus, and city life, Baltimore is close to a variety of outdoor activities and beautiful scenery.

Get your green quotient in just a 20-minute drive from the college—play, hike, bike, camp, or go horseback riding in the green valleys and rolling hills that surround the city. Mountains and winter sports are a little further west— about three hours.

Baltimore is a Port City

A seven-mile paved waterfront promenade lets you walk around and enjoy the Inner Harbor from all sides. If you love sailing, rowing, or other water sports, you can do so in the Inner Harbor or you can travel just an hour to the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Another couple of hours will take you to the gorgeous white sand beaches on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
