Christopher Metzger's community-based photo work in East Baltimore was featured in the Baltimore Sun. Yvonne Hardy-Phillips' curated a public art project titled “You Are Here”.

Hardy-Phillips commissioned 8 artists from MICA to create the murals. The project transformed the sides of two buildings into murals. The purpose of the murals is to recognize the area as a “vital part of Baltimore.”

Christopher Metzger contributed with black-and-white portraits of key members in the East Baltimore community (as seen above).

Long-time adjunct Jim Condron was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. His achievement was also recognized by the Baltimore Sun. The grant is worth $30,000 and is awarded to artists to aid them financially so they may continue their work.

Condron was also awarded the Gottlieb Foundation Individual Support Grant, which also financially aids artists. To qualify for the grant, the artist must have created mature art for at least 20 years.
