Stevenson's Art & Visual Communication Design department will host, Jinhwan Kim as our Spring 2017 Artist-in-Residence, February 12-14. Jinhwan Kim is an active graphic designer currently residing in Chicago. Originally from Korea, Jinhwan has a diverse background creating compelling UX and UI solutions for various industries, especially digital projects for the new United web, Discover Home Equity web, and FedEx App global releases. Influenced by these experiences, he contributed digital design solutions and futuristic concepts to companies in the North American healthcare industry as well.

Kim received a BS in Graphic Design from the Arizona State University and an MFA in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art. The Princeton Architectural Press published book, Type on Screen features his research on page transitions and digital interface. He is a lover of typography, a self-motivated artist, and an imperfect human being who always challenges himself with new and old skills.

In addition to visiting classes, Kim will present a lecture on his work on Monday, February 13, at 7 pm, in the Soundstage (SD101) in the School of Design Building (11100 Ted Herget Way, Owings Mills, MD 21117) on our Owings Mills North campus, with a 6pm reception beforehand in the lobby of that same building.

Freelance photographer and collage artist Leneé Freeman, a 2011 Visual Communication Design graduate, is mid-way through her Urban Arts Leadership Program fellowship. The UALP is a Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance program that facilitates persons of color training in arts management, social justice, and professional development. This ten-month fellowship includes four months of intensive weekend training and six months working with Baltimore arts organizations.

Leneé’s arts administration placements are with Baltimore Clayworks and Single Carrot Theatre. Leneé’s Clayworks projects included photographing ceramics for a catalog and helping the organization promote its classes and events. Her role at Single Carrot Theatre includes event promotions and administrative support.

When asked how she has grown personally, professionally and creatively as a result of this fellowship, Leneé explains that her time management and still life photography skills have improved greatly. She has also gained insight into how organizations use social media platforms.

An activity that is included in the fellowship training is for all fellows to raise $500. for a personal art project. Leneé's Indegogo fundraising campaign is titled “Shades of Brown: diversity and inclusion.” This collage series was started by Leneé after she noticed that “other paper portrait artist didn't make paper people that I could relate to I began making my own. My mission was to create paper illustrations with diverse shades of brown and body images. They represent inclusion and to showcase dynamic fashions, lifestyles, and beauty among various shades of brown complexions in the African American community.” 

The Stevenson University community is encouraged to support this project. To learn more about this project click on this link. The first fellow to reach the campaign goal receives an additional $500.

Stevenson University seniors or recent grads are encouraged to apply for this fellowship. The application deadline is early May and the fellowship begins in September. Feel free to contact Lori Rubeling, lrubeling@stevenson.edu or go to GBCA’s web site, for more information on the UALP application.

On December 9th at MICA, Inna Alesina spoke about her Bread Zoo and demonstrated how to make bread from scratch. The event took place during Interaction, Intersection, Action. Students and MICA visitors learned how to make the dough and took it home to bake. Bread Zoo’s goal is to build community through hands on experiences and design.

On November 17th, Carter Brigham (right), one of the creators of Corcl, visited the VCD 370 class to design merit badges for a summer camp. Corcl has become popular among a number of camps.
