Metropolitan Museum Visit

On a recent visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Jeffrey Mims met with long time artist friends Cheryl Wheat and Edward Schmidt, who helped found the NY Academy of Art in the 1980s.  It was during this period,  while Mims was living in Rome and Schmidt was at the American Academy, that they met.

Where to Study?

In the May 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine, Mims Studios is featured in an article by Robert K. Carsten about choosing art schools.  This article advises prospective students to select an environment where they can learn most readily, and consider what options are available.  The point is made with images included in the piece juxtaposing Mims Studios with two very different alternatives at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Cooper Union School (below).
