    …a sympathetic look at a group of supremely talented but often misunderstood young people training to be artists.

    …Witham had access to students, faculty and administrators at the top-flight Baltimore art school known by its students as MICA. For President Fred Lazarus IV, MICA’s leader since 1978, the project was a chance to show what an art college was really like. Though he concedes other colleges might be hesitant to give an author an all-access pass to their campus, the potential rewards outweighed any concerns in Lazarus’ mind.

    “The fact is parents and guidance counselors don’t have a clue what happens in these colleges,” he said. “How do we try to give them a sense of what these kids are going through so they can communicate and relate to them and hopefully take them seriously? I hope this book provides that insight.”
