The Maryland Institute College of Art has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support its programming around a historic Baltimore printing collection.

The grant announced Friday will support the school's residency, exhibition and public programming around the Globe Collection and Press, which MICA acquired in 2011. The Globe Collection is one of the largest collections of printing history in the world and for more than 80 years promoted musical acts such as Louis Armstrong, Aretha Franklin and Snoop Dogg as well as other aspects of civic and public life, including film, elections, community fairs and boxing matches. Posters produced by the Globe Poster Printing Corp. can be found in the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., and the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum in New York.
