Jackie Milad is a Baltimore City-based artist whose mixed-media abstract drawings and collages address the layers, history and complexities surrounding multi-ethnic identity. By blending what appears to be disparate imagery and language from her Egyptian-Honduran immigrant upbringing, she creates a unique world of her own.
Milad has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally. Exhibitions include the Harvey B. Gantt Center (Charlotte, NC), The Walters Art Museum (Baltimore, MD), Arthur Ross Gallery University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA), and the Museo de Arte de Mazatlan (Mazatlan, MX), among others. Milad is a multi-year recipient of the individual Artist Grant from Maryland State Arts Council. In 2019 she was named a Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize Finalist and a Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Ruby Grantee. Milad received her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, and her MFA from Towson University. Besides her active studio practice, Jackie Milad also has an extensive career as a curator and educator.
