Dear Microcosm Reader,
The leaves are turning over, and MICA students are rolling over in their beds, EAGER TO JUMP OUT OF THE COVERS AND HEAD OFF TO CLASS. Autumn is here and Microcosm’s STAFF IS happy to be back from a wonderful first year and A productive and relaxing summer break.
We’re starting with a largely new group, excited for more to join, and going green-friendly! We’re progressively expanding our interests not only TO embrace Asian arts and Asian culture, but WE ARE also EXCITED TO EXAMINE other arts through a cultural perspective. Not only that but we’re looking to make you, OUR READER, a bigger part of our work, so feel free to contact us at micamicrocosm@gmail.com.
Since our group members have changed with the new school year–LAST YEAR’S FOUNDING members now super busy seniors and juniors–our mission statement has also slightly altered as well. Check out our ‘about’ page to see what our NEW collective goals are!
So far MICROCOSM HAS met with Byron Kim and Hiro Sakaguchi, two professional, INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN Asian artists. They’ve inspired us to think about the notions of skin color and TO CONTEMPLATE HOW ONE CAN FEEL/ESTABLISH A sense of territory over intangible space. We’ve met with some MICA student artists and talked about their developping and innovating ideas and styles as well. Click through our website to see more!
We’re in the process of sharing conversation with Sam Holmes, who recently spoke at MICA, Phuong Pham, an artist RESIDING IN Baltimore, Sharlyn Rhee, a faculty member OF MICA’S LANGUAGE, LITERATURE & CULTURE DEPARTMENT, along with student artists such as Julie Cheng, Emilia Papanicolau, and Danny Knox. THESE ARTICLES WILL SOO BE AVAILABLE IN A DIGITAL format you can ENJOY AND SHARE. We’re always looking for bright, new people to meet and greet. SO if you’d like to have some of your ideas and art shared with Microcosm, let us know!
Happy Fall!
Cheers,

Dear Microcosm Reader,

The leaves are turning over, and MICA students are rolling over in their beds, eager to jump out of the covers and head off to class. Autumn is here and Microcosm’s staff is happy to be back from a wonderful first year and a productive and relaxing summer break.
