MCTC Graphic Design Instructor and alum Stephanie Glaros is collaborating with the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District (DID) and the city’s Community Planning and Economic Development (CPED) department for her unique approach to community photography and engagement. Stephanie is one of many artists collaborating with the Minneapolis Long Range Planning division to help ensure the city’s compelling downtown experience, and will be conducting outreach to downtown community members using engagement processes beyond the technological realm.
“I am proud that Stephanie not only graduated with an A.S. in Graphic Design from MCTC, but also went on to be an important faculty member of the Graphic Design program,” said Bill Hendricks, MCTC Graphic Design instructor.
From the DID website: “The goal is for Glaros to use still photography, audio and video to paint pictures of what people think and feel when they are in the downtown area. The hope from Glaros’ perspective is she’ll be able to give the average person a voice and a way to be heard.” Read the story here.
