Ryan Cho (MFA, Illustration Practice '18)
Ryan has expanded his illustration practice into a three dimensional depiction of 90's and 00's skate culture. He will be using his award to take the 8' x 8' installation on the road to skate shops in Baltimore and Philadelphia in order to reach those who are part of the depicted culture.
Maria Emilia Duno (MFA, Curatorial Practice '19)
Grant money will be used to fund a research trip to Havana Cuba where limited internet access has led to the sharing of subversive information and materials through USB drives. Emilia will use the information gathered in Cuba for a curated online exhibition.
Lauri Hafvenstein (MFA, Studio Art '20)
Lauri will be attending the Munsel Sentinel Color Symposium at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Workshops at the symposium will provide the skills needed to help Lauri with the development of her studio practice as she continues to explore perceived color in her work.
Laila Milevski (MFA, Illustration Practice '19)
Experimenting with the process of visual journalism, Laila will travel to Europe where she will collect inspiration for a project documenting her grandmothers journey to the United States from Latvia via Germany.

BmoreArt Re-Model PD Speaker Series
I wanted to put this event on your radar for Thursday, March 29! BmoreArt is hosting Heather Darcy Bhandari, a NY-based curator and author of ART/WORK (the best artist PD book that exists in my opinion) and Amy Eva Raehse, executive director and curator of Goya Contemporary.
We will be discussing 'Ethics and the Art Gallery' and I know that these two women bring a wealth of information valuable to artists at all stages of their careers and also to collectors.
Please share with your students, networks, and colleagues! This should be good.
It's free but seating is limited, so please ask ppl to RSVP!
Thanks for your help and support! Please share!
Participation Requested: Student Perception Survey
Yesterday, you received an email inviting you to take an online campus survey about gender-based harassment and violence at MICA. This survey is intended to collect information from you about your experiences, if any, of sex or gender based discrimination and violence on campus, your knowledge of MICA policies against sex based discrimination and violence, and to inform next steps. Your voice is extremely important. Please use this link to take the survey:
As a reminder:
The survey is anonymous and will be administered from February 28-March 7.
Why is MICA conducting a student perception survey?
We are deeply committed to understanding the scope of gender-based harassment and violence on our campus. The survey will gather information that will help in our continuing efforts to prevent and respond to sexual assault and misconduct.
Why should I take the survey?
Your response matters, every response matters. By making your voice heard you will be an important part of MICA’s continuing efforts to implement strategies that make a difference on our campus.
Will my answers be confidential?
Yes, the answers you provide through taking the survey will be anonymous and confidential. The data will be gathered through a third party. It is necessary that this survey is anonymous to take an accurate pulse of what is going on in our community. If you need to speak with someone please see the resources below.
How long will it take me?
Depending upon your responses, the survey is expected to take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. By the nature of the topic, it is possible that certain questions or sections of this climate survey may evoke deep reactions. Be aware that you can stop anytime, save your responses, and return to it later, or abandon the survey completely.
Where can I find support and resources?
For support due to issues raised by the survey, please contact Student Counseling at email@example.com or 410.225.2367. We have also included a list of resources available both internal and external to MICA at the bottom of this email. The list is available at https://www.mica.edu/Documents/2017_SexualMisconductResourceGuide_Web.pdf.
Again, the link to the survey is https://survey.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0Op3Bdl8tuyXTZX
As a token of our appreciation, the first 300 students who complete the survey will receive a coupon for a free cup of coffee. We thank you in advance for your time. If you have questions about this survey please do not hesitate to contact Awo Sarpong Ansu, Director of Equity, at 410-225-4205 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
