In response to Covid-19 related closures of arts institutions all over the country, a collaborative effort started at RISD created the Thesis Shows 2020 digital platform presenting the work of

graduating students of peer arts institutions. We invite you to see the work of the MICA Photography class of 2020, as well other young artists’ works all over the country.

In conjunction, we have built a virtual thesis exhibition to display the hard work, creative labor, and dedication of these students. In it you will find their portfolios and senior book.

“Two months have passed since COVID-19 shut us down. From my new social distance, I’ve witnessed a great range of emotion. Although the disbelief, frustration and anger seem to be shifting, the reality remains. My class continues to work intensely and with great passion. They have created compelling and beautiful work over their senior year at MICA. What I know now, is that their dedication to their practice and to each other has been forged. This will fortify and serve them always.” Regina DeLuise

To the seniors, we applaud your work, your commitment to each other and the well being of our society. We have loved seeing your drive to question, to make, and to respond.  This spirit will serve you as you navigate what comes next. What comes next is always unknown, but in these unprecedented times, the weight of uncertainty feels more ambiguous and heavy. We can say, with great certainty, the work displayed in the creation of this site is proof of a ubiquitous collaborative spirit that exists in your generation of makers. It is stronger and more unified than ever before.

MICA Photo is pleased to announce that we are retiring several 4×5 Cambo “Cadet” model  monorail cameras with soft cases, and we are making them available for purchase to students who are interested. These cameras will need a lens & lensboard to be fully functional – neither are included in the sale. There are a very limited amount of cameras available. These cameras are sold on an “as-is” basis, and are strictly first come, first sold. The cameras are all priced at $100, and must be paid in cash. One camera per buyer.

MICA Photo will be taking ALL money from the sale of these cameras, and placing the proceeds in the “Friends of Photography” scholarship fund. Your purchase of a camera will insure that future students who are encountering financial issues will get the assistance they need. This ongoing fund will help to provide assistance to students who might need help, make funds available for students who will be attending the Anderson Ranch through a grant, and to provide an emergency fund that will be there to access when needed. Contact Jefferson Steele at: jsteele02@mica.edu to arrange purchase.
