Thanksgiving Break Hours

Department — KVH @ 3:11 pm, Monday, November 23rd, 2009


Thanksgiving Break is upon us, and though some of you are traveling, and some are sticking around to hang with friends, all of you should take a day or two off to relax, recoup, sleep, and plan for the end of your semester.

For those of you sticking around for part or all of the break, building hours for the break will be as follows:

Dolphin is open all day Wednesday until 7 PM.
Dolphin will be closed all of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Dolphin reopens on Sunday at noon.

These are campus-wide hours for break, and the building will be deadbolted. Please plan for your time accordingly, and take anything you might want to work on over the break home with you on Wednesday.

Whether or not you are traveling, please have a great break.

This Saturday night, Open Space Baltimore has an opening for their latest group show, Ordinary Spectacles.

Additionally, our very own Printmaking alumna, Erica Prince, who has been doing well in her own right (sorry, no direct link to New American Paintings), is part of the show.

With all this Print Fair excitement, I forgot to mention that TONIGHT is a screening of TYPEFACE, the documentary about the Hamilton Type Foundry (and now Museum) in Two Rivers, WI.

This will be excellent, and should not be missed if you are remotely interested in the printed word, letterpress, wood type, graphic design, and anything in between!


The screening is TONIGHT (That’s Monday, Nov. 9th) at 7 PM in Falvey Hall.

The Director, Justine Nagan will be presenting it an answering questions.

It is FREE to MICA folk.

You’ll regret it if you miss it.

Print Fair weekend roundup!

Department,Events,Exhibitions,Resources — KVH @ 11:27 am, Monday, November 9th, 2009

Boy, if you missed out on the NYC IFPDA and E/AB Print Fairs this weekend, you really missed out. The weather was fantastic, the crowds were easily managed, the print work was far reaching, numerous, and completely accessible.  I genuinely hope you made it up.

Our friends at Printeresting, who had their own event this weekend, wrote up a really fabulous review of the two fairs – and rather than me repeating them, I’ll just send you there.
