Join MFA Illustration Practice this Monday, Feb. 20th at 12:15 for a Lunchtime Lecture with curator George Ciscle. George Ciscle is the founder and first director and curator of the Contemporary Museum. For four years he promoted the careers of young and emerging artists, whom he often scouted by visiting artist’s colonies and graduate schools. Working with young artists and students as a gallery director led Ciscle to conceive what he thought of as an “un-museum,” which would challenge existing conventions for exhibiting art. The Contemporary Museum was founded by Ciscle in 1989. Following seven years at the helm of the Contemporary Museum, Ciscle became Curator-in-Residence at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
