Originally hosted in our four national, in-person craft shows, our School-to-Market program bridges the gap between higher educational curriculum in craft and the marketplace by providing undergraduate and graduate students a public venue for a curated, collective exhibition of their work. ACC looks forward to being back in person in Baltimore in the future and plans to partner with MICA at that time.
In the meantime, shop the MICAMade Marketplace, a year round e-commerce marketplace, hosting a dynamic and vibrant community of MICA students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community partners. Its mission is to nurture the professional growth of artists, designers, and makers by creating and cultivating entrepreneurial opportunities and building sustainable and inclusive marketplaces. @micamademarketplace
The majority of Valerie's earring designs are related to the game of mahjong, which is the central idea behind her undergraduate graphic design degree project at the MICA. Learning how to play mahjong has fostered better relationships with family and friends through shared love and knowledge of the game.
