Upcoming exhibit mixes art, archives, & politics

Staff in Special Collections at Langsdale have been working with MICA students from Dan D’Oca’s 2010-11 Exhibition Development Seminar as they prepare their exhibit, Baltimore: Open City, which opens this Friday at the former North Avenue Market and runs through May 15.

The students have been mining photographic materials and video footage from Special Collections, as well as using publications and archival documents from our collections to further their historical understanding of the city.

We’re looking forward to checking out the exhibit and, as the project website suggests, “exploring what a more open city might look and feel like.” Hope to see you there!
