The Franklin Square community was recently featured on ABC Baltimore’s “The List” for their participation in the PNC Transformative Art Project. As a recipient of the 2012 grant, Franklin Square has worked with Civic Works, Can Collective, Living Classrooms and artists Emily CD, Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn to create a multi-media sculptural installation that celebrates the power of people and plants.
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower was recently featured on ABC Baltimore’s “The List.” The tower houses a variety of artist studios and is open to visitors twice a month. An open house will be held tomorrow, January 19, from 1-5pm.
Park alumni, from the first graduating class to the most recent, have enthusiastically fulfilled those goals. This exhibit, Creative Paths, takes a look at just a few Park graduates who have been, and often continue to be, trailblazers in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. Whether guiding Baltimore into its recent renaissance, or creating the world’s most utilized online resource for medical information on breast health, or gaining international recognition for experimental music, these alumni shape our world in countless ways.
Twelve artists created and exchanged limited edition prints exploring the aesthetic and relevance of the still life in contemporary art. A fundraiser for Current Space’s screen-printing studio will be happening during the opening. Visitors can bring t-shirts and get them printed with designs made by the artists for $5.

EXCHANGE: a home-based artist residency is a thesis project by Hyejung Jang, a Curatorial Practice MFA candidate at Maryland Institute College of Arts (MICA) in partnership with School 33 Art Center. EXCHANGE is designed to explore new ways and potential for forming intimate connections between artists and community members by supporting emerging artists, and integrating contemporary art into everyday life.
This is a two-month long project—from January 23 to March 23, 2013—placing two emerging international artists with two local families in Baltimore. It transforms the home into a fertile platform of new experience, cross-cultural dialogue, social integration, education, and art while the artists live with the host families. The work created by the artist during their residency will be exhibited at School 33 from March 22 to May 25.
The project is currently in the phase of raising funding through a Kickstarter campaign.
