We all like to see someone who deserves success get it. An art school senior, De’Von Brown is the first MICA student to run for a district seat on the Baltimore City Council. We’re assuming he’s got a killer creative portfolio, he’s also Governor Martin O’Malley’s endorsement. Over the last year, we’ve seen Brown’s adventures played out in the local media: his story of returning to the States from the inspirational Baraka School in Kenya; his graduation from the Academy for College and Career Exploration in Hampden. Now we watch with great interest as his journey takes him (possibly) toward the 12th district seat. Brown is a video and film arts major. I say let’s vote for him today! You can’t deny “Member of the Baltimore City Council” will look damn good on his visual-art-centric resume when he graduates.
