‘1807’: Alumnus Christopher Frisone’s Photo Graces Cover

1807, UMB’s art and literary journal, strives to encourage members of the UMB community to express themselves creatively through art and the written word. The annual journal showcases the talents of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the broader UMB community and neighbors in visual arts, photography, varied media, and the written word.

This year’s cover features a beautiful photograph of a hazy sunrise. The soft collage of colors, the ethereal mood, and the leading lines of the cover conjure a feeling of peace. Cover artist Christopher Frisone, MSN, is a certified registered nurse anesthetist and an alumnus of the University of Maryland School of Nursing. He said he was “absolutely floored” that his photographic image “Tranquil Morning” was selected. Notably, he is the first UMB graduate to have artwork chosen for a cover.

Submissions are open for Issue 4 of 1807 now through Feb. 14, 11:59 p.m.
