The Maryland Institute of Art, founded in 1826, advertises itself as "among the top visual arts colleges in the nation."[1] Among the institute's more notable alumni was Alger Hiss, who attended in 1921-22.[2]

During the 1920s, a visiting artist at the Maryland Institute of Art was John Sloan,[3] former editor[4] of the Communist[5] magazine The Masses, which would change its name to New Masses in 1926 (and be edited by Whittaker Chambers[6] starting in 1931). In 1959, the institute would be renamed Maryland Institute, College of Art.
