Jack Wilgus, the longtime head of undergraduate photography programs at the Maryland Institute College of Art, took time off during the 2006-2007 academic year to focus on his own work.
Judging from his hilarious pictures of giant picnic baskets and oversized ducks, on view at the school's faculty Sabbatical Exhibition, Wilgus had a ball. Other instructors represented in the show include Chezia Thompson Cager, Lois Hennessey, Margaret Morrison, Piper Shepard, Whitney Sherman, Laurie Snyder and Susan Waters-Eller.
The Sabbatical Exhibition runs through Sept. 9 in the Decker Gallery of the Fox Building at MICA, 1303 Mount Royal Ave. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Sunday. Call 410-225-2300 or go to mica.edu.
