Every year MAP's Program Advisory Committee (PAC) curates Young Blood, an annual exhibition of works by recent Baltimore-area Masters of Fine Art graduates. The exhibition includes emerging artists from area colleges such as Maryland Institute College of Art, Towson and The University of Maryland College Park.
This years Young Blood exhibition includes:
Jowita Wyszomirska (UMCP)
Taha Heydari (MICA, Hoffberger School of Painting)
Dane Winkler (UMCP)
Elena Debold (UMBC, MFA Intermedia and Digital Arts)
Tom Boram (UMBC)
Sarah Eargle (Towson)
Kei Ito (MICA, MFA Photographic and Electronic Media)
Andrew Paul Keiper (MICA, MFA Photographic and Electronic Media)
To date, Young Blood has provided an important post-graduate artistic platform for 72 transitioning Masters of Fine Arts students. Since 2008 this program has continually brought recent graduates together to make new connections and present special selections from their thesis exhibitions.
According to MAP's former Program Advisory Chair, Cara Ober, “After achieving their Masters the next most important step for young artists is their professional debut in a reputable professional gallery". Many Young Blood artists continue on to be nominated and/or are offered either the prestigious Baker or Sondheim awards, if not elected a finalist.
We hope to see you there!
