BmoreArt at Baltimore Craft Week
Thursday, April 15 • 1pm
presented by The American Craft Council + AIGA Baltimore
Join BmoreArt and the American Craft Council (ACC) for a Zoom discussion of contemporary craft with three featured artists in ACC’s Baltimore Craft Week. Prior to COVID-19, ACC’s annual juried shows in Baltimore, Atlanta, St. Paul, and San Francisco featured thousands of professional artists working in metal, glass, wood, clay, and fibers and attracted a loyal following of more than 45,000 patrons. With Craft Week, ACC is moving their Baltimore event online, so this year we will spotlight a few of their talented artists about the shrinking divide between contemporary art and craft, the meaning of materials, and why living with artful, handmade objects is so important. Special thanks to AIGA Baltimore for Co-hosting.
The History of Black Women In Graphic Design
Thursday, April 15 • 6pm
presented by MICA
The William O.Steinmetz ’50 Designer-in-Residence program is MICA’s most prominent annual design event, named after MICA alumnus, faculty member and trustee William Steinmetz (1927–2016). This year, MICA is honored to bring together three generations of cultural activists, including two MICA alumni, to discuss the crucial issue of racial justice in art and design and to celebrate the achievements of Black creative professionals. In light of racial injustice felt across the country, topics this year will focus on graphic design history and why Black representation matters. Cheryl D. Miller ’74 and Tasheka Arceneaux-Sutton will present an intimate look at the Black woman in design’s hidden history.
