Exhibition explores, responds to 2015 uprising

Are we any better off today than we were in April 2015? What has changed? What still needs to change? What is the role of the arts in revolution? These are just some of the questions that will be explored and discussed as part of Baltimore Rising, an exhibition bringing together a broad survey of works by 15 artists—with significant ties to Baltimore—who address the social, economic, political and racial issues that propelled the city to the national spotlight in 2015.

The retrospective will be hosted by the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) from November 2 through 23 at the Riggs and Leidy Galleries inside the Fred Lazarus IV Center for Graduate Studies.

Artists featured in the exhibition include: Derrick Adams, Lauren Adams, Devin Allen, Sonya Clark, J.M. Giordano, Logan Hicks, Jeffrey Kent, Nate Larson, Nether, Olivia Robinson, Paul Rucker, Joyce J. Scott, Tony Shore, Shinique Smith and Susan Waters-Eller.

As part of the exhibition, MICA will host three special events that are open to the public. For more information, go to:
