Cheon Kroiz Diamonds at Maryland Art Place

MICA Faculty artist  Mina Cheon and Morgan State University (MSU) Professor architect Gabriel Kroiz share their diamond light sculptures "on" Maryland Art Place (MAP), a contemporary art center in Baltimore. Recycling the diamonds from "Diamonds Light Baltimore" featured in Light City 2016, they are newly rebuilt and installed on MAP in support by Elemental Metalworks. Looking like diamonds tumbling down the building, they light up at night to bring safety to the area. With this project, Cheon Kroiz is thrilled to be working with a former MICA student Andrew Pisacane, famously known by his street artist name GAIA, for painting more diamonds in the alley and expanding the diamond concept visually. The project was commissioned by MAP with the support from the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore. Collaborated by Mina Cheon Studio and Kroiz Architecture, it was done with assistants and interns from MICA and MSU including So Hee Kim and Ryan Couto. The reveal and celebration of the diamonds project at MAP was April 13 but will remain on site for several years as a semi-permanent installation. (Photo: So Hee Kim)
