Every year MAP's Program Advisory Committee (PAC) curates Young Blood, an annual exhibition of works by recent Baltimore-area Masters of Fine Art graduates. The exhibition includes emerging artists from area colleges such as Maryland Institute College of Art, Towson and The University of Maryland. To date, Young Blood has provided an important post-graduate artistic platform for 79 transitioning Masters of Fine Arts students. Since 2008 this program has continually brought recent graduates together to make new connections and present special selections from their thesis exhibitions. This exhibition will highlight exceptional works ranging from painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and animation.
