President’s Message

A Message From President Laura Hine & Chairman Henry Doggrell

One of Hollywood’s most enduring and endearing movies is “It’s a Wonderful Life,” where George Bailey, the protagonist in Frank Capraís 1946 film, and the film’s audience are given a backward tour of the grim landscape that would have existed had George never been born. On the flip side, George and the audience are given the opportunity to see the richness of his life, the big and small ways he impacted others’ lives, the beauty that exists because he was indeed born.

A similar theme applies to MCA, which enriches the creative landscape, not only here in Memphis, but also in the other communities where MCA graduates have gone on to establish professions. MCA students, faculty and alumni manifest their talents in a myriad of ways to make the world a richer and better place.

MCA is pleased to cultivate artistic talent and creative expression as an institution. The worldview and civility such an education imparts has never been more important than it is now.

We thank you for your interest in MCA, and hope that you will decide to become part of the thriving community of MCA artists who make a difference in this country and around the world.
