The Maryland Institute College of Art plans to move its shop for selling textbooks and art supplies, and remodel it into a space with galleries and areas for how-to workshops.
You might think of the result not so much as a bookstore as a bookstare.
The college's public relations manager, Derek Parsons, said in an email that the shop's move three blocks west from its current location at 1200 W. Mount Royal Ave. will "greatly expand" its footprint to 4,500 square feet.
In addition, the remodeling, which will be finished by the Aug. 28 start of the fall semester, is designed to foster a closer relationship between MICA and the wider Station North community in which the school is located, Parsons said.
