On this #GoodNewsFriday, we've got some great updates to share about MMC students! ★1-2: Senior BFA Dance major Kayla Kemp ’24 was featured on the "Today" show last week, as part of a flash mob celebrating the 40th anniversary of "Footloose." Fun fact about Kayla: In 2022, she received the prestigious Jeannette K. Watson Fellowship, which is awarded to just 15 undergraduates each year.  ★3: Senior MT major Katelyn Harold ’24 just booked her first regional contract! She'll be playing Francine in "Jersey Boys" at the @EngemanTheater this spring. And, with commencement around the corner, the rehearsal schedule allows her to finish all her classes and fulfill her credits. "This experience would not be possible without the support and training I’ve received throughout my time at MMC, and I’m so grateful," she said. ★4: Junior MT major Andrew Maroney ’25 will be spending the summer in Washington with @numericapac playing Lonny in "Rock of Ages." "It is an absolute honor to join this incredible group of creatives on my first professional contract," they said. "I cannot wait to get going with this amazing cast and creative team in just a few short months!" Congratulations! #MMCProud #GoGriffins

You're watching the evolution of Professor Hallie Cohen's stunning ink painting "One Arte." The work is part of her new exhibition, MI RICORDO: ROMAN WATERCOLORS, on display at MMC's Hewitt Gallery of Art from Feb. 26-April 2. Join us for the opening on Thursday, February 29, from 6-8 pm. The exhibition consists of 12-foot by 5-foot watercolor/ink paintings Cohen produced at the American Academy in Rome in the Visiting Artists and Scholars program. They capture iconic images from the films of Italian directors Federico Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Paolo Sorrentino and are accompanied by short videos by the author and essayist Francis Levy. The show's opening reception will include a panel discussion with the artist and MMC Professors Adrienne Baxter Bell and Noelle Griffis moderated by Levy in The Judy (8th floor Carson Hall) from 6:30-7:30 pm. #MMCProud #artinnyc #artistslife #nyccollege

    Ben draws upon deeply personal life experiences to create his colorful and complex contemporary paintings. “I want to visually convey Tibetan philosophical ideas in works that focus on current social, political, and cultural issues,” he says. “The notions of freedom, interdependence, and compassion are important in a time when many are rejecting our connectedness and focusing on differences.”
