AAD Students and Faculty to Present at National Community Arts Conference

The Arts and Administration Program is proud to announce that five graduate students will be attending the Nathan Cummings Foundation Community Arts Convening at the Maryland Institute College of Art, March 15-18.   Attendees include AAD Faculty Dr. Lori Hager, and graduate students, Katie Schumm, Elizabeth Bostwick, Kim Johnson, Maria Torres, and Elizabeth Lamb.

The convening brings together scholars, practitioners, and students to “advance the field of community arts.”   Attendees wrote papers which have been posted on the conference website, http://www.mica.edu/communityartsconvening/ , and which will form the basis of facilitated discussion.   Liz Lerman will be the key note “speaker.”
