Alumnus Hopes to Bridge Cultural Gap With Art

When Justin Sirois graduated from MICA in 2001, the printmaking major pursued graphic design, but found himself slowly becoming fascinated with a different form of art--fiction.

That fascination led him to start a series of creative projects, including one that examined life for Middle Eastern refugees of the Iraq War. "I was specifically interested in the two sieges of the Iraqi city of Fallujah in 2004," Sirois said. "I wanted to know more about the personal cost and the civilian side of those two battles."
