So after a long period of neglecting our blog we have finally decided to bring it back to life. Many new updates are on the way, but this just could not wait.
Have you passed by the windows of the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall recently? Maybe some DayGlo caught your attention? That handy work is thanks to MICA students, faculty and alumni who took over and curated an exhibition.
Come check it out up close and personal at the closing reception on Tuesday March 24 from 5:30–8:30 p.m.
The exhibit highlights Globe’s legendary music posters for R&B, rock, hip hop and Go-Go artists, and also features carnival posters, political posters, and a wall dedicated to the women of Globe, from carnival babes to top women artists. The exhibit also notes MICA students’ contributions to bringing Globe to MICA and includes photographs of students sorting and packing the collection.
But wait! There is MORE!
Several classic screen reprints of iconic Globe posters will be sold during the reception with faculty member Bob Cicero, one of the former owners of the collection, on hand to sign them.
The exhibition team included
MICA graduate students Allison Gulick, Deana Haggag, Chloe Helton-Gallagher, Kelcey Towell
MICA alumna Allison Fisher ’11, Globe consultant at MICA Mary Mashburn
Letterpress prooﬁng by Globe Collection and Press coordinator Ingrid Schindall and interns
Christine Brown, Justin Caruso, Rei Lem, Lyla Schlon and Mario Urpi
Photographs by Sam Culpepper, Allison Fisher, Becky Slogeris ’11
Thanks to Toby Blumenthal at the Meyerhoff, Sabrina Kogan ’11, Kimberly Gim, and Steve St. Angelo
Extra special thanks to Bob and Frank Cicero and to all the Friends of Globe in Baltimore and beyond who helped to save Globe’s treasures
Hope to see you there!
