“Behind these statistics, MICA students are academically gifted, well-rounded men and women. Entering students combine high academic achievement with spectacular visual art portfolios. Many freshmen have already been recognized through national awards and scholarships when they arrive. They also are class valedictorians, award-winning athletes, accomplished musicians and dancers, poets and actors, and student leaders.
Our art and design faculty are distinguished, award-winning artists with insight, experience, and connections to share with the emerging artists they mentor. They exhibit in national, regional, and international museums and galleries and are represented in major public and private collections around the world. They publish widely on subjects as diverse as the Japanese tea ceremony and cyber-culture in America. They design major museum exhibitions, illustrate the covers of national magazines, execute coveted commissions for public art, work with top software companies, and win prestigious design competitions. ” -MICA
