The opening on Friday, Nov. 30th, drew a large crowd to the funky spot which still had details of its past as a drug store. They promise to have weekend hours and DJs every Friday through the month of December.

Perception & Ability is an exhibition that will address the negative perceptions caused by labeling a person’s ability. Artists will respond in a contemporary manner and the work will be installed at Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum & Library, which will respond to the experience of the house’s one-time-owner Ambassador John Work Garrett (1872-1942) in an historic manner.
Perception & Ability will open March 10, with a reception on March 12, and close on May 26, 2013. Deadline for submission is December 30, 2012. Submissions will be reviewed by a jury in January. Application HERE.
