The Baltimore Museum of Art and the Maryland Institute College of Art are pleased to announce a new print edition by Trenton Doyle Hancock. The edition, titled "YU, MICA, ME" was published at MICA in collaboration with the Baltimore Museum of Art. The proceeds will be split between the BMA acquisition fund for contemporary prints and MICA's Globe Fund to support artists' residencies.
Using Globe's iconic poster style and wood type,Trenton Doyle Hancock's limited edition letterpress and screenprint was printed by student interns at MICA's Globe Collection and Press, under the direction of former Globe's press owner Bob Cicero with support from Ann Shafer, Ben Levy (BMA), Ingrid Schindall (MICA) along with Project Directors, Gail Deery and Mary Mashburn (MICA). The publication is the first fine art print produced at the Press, since the historic purchase of Globe Poster Printing by the Maryland Institute College of Art.
"Globe is a national treasure and a unique part of Baltimore's cultural history. MICA is thrilled to be able to bring this extraordinary collection onto its campus and allow its legacy to live on through the eyes and hands of the many artists, designers and scholars who will benefit from its continuing to serve as an active, working press," said MICA Provost Ray Allen. "The integration of Globe will distinguish MICA among its peers nationally and make Baltimore a special destination for those with a special interest in hand letterpress work."
