Today we’d like to introduce you to MIA CROSS.
MIA, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I grew up in Framingham, MA. In high school I was active in just about everything but by the end of sophomore year I decided to quit sports and focus on my energy on my high school’s television production program and art program. By my senior year I wasn’t positive that pursuing art was a possibility so I half-heartedly applied to a couple of art programs. I was waitlisted from one and accepted to two, one of which was Boston University. By then I knew that I wanted to attend a college in Boston and was choosing between Northeastern, BU, and Emerson. I went with BU because it had the strongest visual arts program and I knew that if I wanted to change course I could do that in a large university. By the end of freshman year I was hooked! I was so impressed by all of my professors and loved immersing myself in art every day. I decided to double major in painting and sculpture and graduated with my BFA in 2014.
