Our story

Elena Johnston (1985-2023) transferred from Havertown, Pennsylvania to Baltimore in 2002 to pursue her BFA in illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art and, later, a BA in art education from Towson University and MA in art education at MICA—all while earning broad recognition for her industrious artistic process, near-continuous exhibiting and collaborating with fellow artists, the publication of her 2008 volume Paper Kingdom: A Collection of Baltimore Music Posters, and her work as a teacher in Baltimore City Public Schools (2014-2018). A prolific and passionate artist, Elena poured her creativity into everything she did. Anyone who had the privilege of hearing her laugh will never forget it. She was thoughtful and generous, a deeply caring friend, and an active and beloved part of the Baltimore arts community. She is deeply missed.

Our goal

The Elena Johnston Memorial Scholarship Fund will support the academic aspirations of a student in Maryland who is pursuing an education in the arts through an accredited 2- or 4-year degree program.
