Freshman at the Maryland Institute College of Art
Finding Baltimore: Intro into Community Arts
Freshman students in Elements of Visual Thinking foundation course explore their surroundings and community driven art processes by interviewing local Baltimoreans with their peers. This project resulted in collaborative artwork inspired by collected community stories and their own experience of Baltimore. Works most often allude to issues around identity, class and race.
