Young Blood 2015

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 and The University of Maryland College Park. Since 2008 this program has continually brought recent graduates together to make new connections and present special selections from their graduate 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." Since 2008, Young Blood has provided a meritorious exhibition experience for over 45 artists.
