Fine Art & Art Education
Victoria Cho grew up in Great Falls, Virginia and received her
BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2022, where she expects to also receive her Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in 2023.
Victoria's work has been exhibited in George Washington University’s Enterprise Hall in Ashburn, Virginia, a number of juried exhibitions in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Wakaime Art School in Japan. Victoria is also a recent recipient of the Leslie King Hammond Graduate Fellowship Award and the Marcella Brenner W’32 H’01 Distinguished MAT Scholar Award for her portfolio and work in MICA’s MAT program.
Victoria's interest in museum education has led her to acquire work experience at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM), Renwick Gallery, and the National Gallery of Art (NGA). She created materials and curricula for the museums’ education programs that are currently in use. Victoria continues to stay involved with SAAM and NGA where she is scheduled to work in the Summer and Fall of 2022 as a museum educator contractor.
Working in painting, printmaking, collage, and digital media,
I create two-dimensional, mixed-media works to better understand the relationships between myself and my maternal family. I draw upon personal and familial experiences from family photographs, oral histories, and my own memory to construct multi-layered compositions that consist of portraits and interior subject matter. Each of my works portrays and celebrates the lives and personalities of those who are depicted through color, material, and individual-specific patterns. Meanwhile, themes of poignancy and beauty are also emphasized throughout my work, highlighting loss while also conveying the joyous times we spent together.
