The Fitzgerald’s Local Love Spotlight: MICA Art Supplies

For our first ‘Local Love Spotlight,’ we’re heading down the street to MICA Art Supplies, located on the Maryland Institute College of Art’s campus. Since we’re big fans of MICA and supporting local businesses and students in Baltimore, this is one shop we highly recommend. This two-story store is located right across the street from The Fitzgerald, on the corner of Dolphin Street & Mt. Royal Avenue, so it’s not only one of the best places to stock up on all the art supplies your heart desires, but also the most convenient art supply in the Mount Vernon neighborhood.

Stepping inside, you’re bombarded by the variety and seer amount of art supplies taking up the ground floor. As you walk up the stairs, you’ll find a great assortment of printed materials and MICA merchandise. It doesn’t take your eye more then a few moments to notice the student and alumni art hanging throughout the store, giving you an opportunity most chain art stores can’t: the ability to support local artist and take home one-of-a-kind items. Aside from having great prices year-round, the store also holds a huge sale at the end of each semester, allowing you to get amazing prices on the quality supplies you need.

So why not stroll across the street sometime to check out this week’s Local Love Spotlight!
