Welcome From Urban Scholar Alumnus: Quanye Hoskins
I am Quanye, an artist, a scholar, and a Tech Boston Academy graduate. I will be attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design in the fall, and I plan on studying Illustration and Graphic Design.
During my time at Urban Scholars, I have taken part in a couple of projects:
- InTransit: Voices and Visions, which was a community art project around the theme of journey. It involved interviewing fellow citizens of Boston and capturing their experiences and what journey means for them. My fellow students and I designed posters that made their way onto the MBTA Red and Orange Line trains.
- The Marble Collection (TMC) Teen Publication Workshop, which pairs Massachusetts high school teens with college student mentors who provide editorial feedback to prepare them for publication in the TMC magazine.
I aspire to be an artist and designer in the future. Artists and designers job are important: every artificial thing we interact with has been designed by someone, and it’s important for us to think about how his/her design affects others. I plan to excel at MassArt, challenge myself, and push out of my comfort zone to try new things.
