Maryland Institute of Art
The Maryland Institute of Art, founded in 1826, advertises itself as "among the top visual arts colleges in the nation." Among the institute's more notable alumni was Alger Hiss, who attended in 1921-22.
During the 1920s, a visiting artist at the Maryland Institute of Art was John Sloan, former editor of the Communist magazine The Masses, which would change its name to New Masses in 1926 (and be edited by Whittaker Chambers starting in 1931). In 1959, the institute would be renamed Maryland Institute, College of Art.
