A new art exhibit created by students, alumni and faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art has arrived at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall (BWI).
“Stories of Home” will be shown on the upper level of BWI’s international terminal through Nov. 4. Artists show the bearings of memory, identity, cultural affinity, politics, creativity and spirituality in the exhibit. Submissions have come from as far away as Japan.
