Arts Every Day is proud to present its 8th installment of our annual 10X10 Exhibit titled- Kaleidoscope: Ideas, Images & Symbols, Inspired by the works of Elizabeth Talford Scott. This year, Arts Every Day is partnering with MICA to showcase this year’s student exhibition within the context of the community-wide celebration and Scott’s legacy.  Lead by AED’s 10X10 Exhibit organizer Betty Gonzales, a former EDS student, the partnership helps bridge student artists with the rich history of local artists and arts institutions.  MICA student curators will work alongside AED’s Youth Curatorial Program team (consisting of 4 Baltimore City Public School students) to create a compelling story about Baltimore’s artistic past, present state, and future. 

Twenty-five years ago, the Maryland Institute College of Art’s (MICA) inaugural Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS) organized a landmark retrospective of Elizabeth Talford Scott’s vibrant mixed-media fiber works. This fall, the BMA is partnering with MICA and the Estate of Elizabeth Talford Scott at Goya Contemporary to build upon that legacy with an exhibition guest-curated by MICA Curator-in-Residence Emeritus George Ciscle in dialogue with a new generation of EDS students.

EDS students, led by instructor Deyane Moses, will organize The Elizabeth Talford Scott Community Celebration with presentations at eight institutions across Baltimore City: Cryor Art Gallery at Coppin State University, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland Center for History and Culture, MICA, James E. Lewis Museum of Art at Morgan State University, The Peale (in partnership with Arts Every Day), Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, and the Walters Art Museum. These presentations will be on view from February through May 2024.
