Wednesday, 8/20: Demo Studio Opening Reception
Shyla Rao, Director of the MA in Teaching, has been working with a group of art teachers this past school year in a research study group focused on Assessment in Art Education:
"We partnered with Demo Studio to visualize our research into an exhibition at D Center gallery on North Ave.
This arts-based research initiative raises questions about assessment and considers the poetic nature of the Latin root of assessment, meaning "to sit beside."
Join Shyla at a reception tonight from 5-9 PM at D Center, and return for a Design Conversation about this process on September 2nd, 6-8pm at The Wind Up Space.

Alumni Project (Graham Coreil-Allen, Mount Royal) -- Fun Walking Tours of Baltimore:
Throughout the month of September, Baltimore public artist Graham Coreil-Allen and MICA Mount Royal School of Art Alum will host four New Public Sites walking tours of invisible public spaces around Baltimore. Including the Highway to Nowhere, Reservoir Hill / Druid Lake, Old Town Mall and Power Plant Live, these tours will be documented for his forthcoming internet video series SiteLines.
Coreil-Allen’s ongoing New Public Sites project interprets the overlooked and invisible sites within cities, investigates the negotiable nature of public space, and pushes the boundaries of pedestrian agency. SiteLines will translate his radical walking tours and urban design research into sharable, online videos. The video production will capture Coreil-Allen and walking tour participants as they playfully explore public space while he shares some of the sites’ histories, design, and uses. The four tours are thematically connected by featuring suburban style development in a city context, including urban highways and pedestrian malls. The entire SiteLines season will be released on the New Public Sites YouTube channel on a periodic basis, then exhibited as part of a larger installation in Baltimore next Spring. SiteLines will present a compelling portrait of Baltimore and its civic space potential through dramatic shots of public space and pedestrian interactions therein. All tours are free and open to the public.
Walking tour / video shoot schedule:
Saturday, September 6, 1pm - Crossing the Highway to Nowhere
- Explore interchanging embankments around The Highway to Nowhere while bolding crossing where many have walked before.
- Meet at 398 N Greene Street, in the former Social Security Administration Offices plaza.
- Where the sidewalk ends beyond a flowing overpass, climb as Druids towards a pastoral sublime.
- Meet at 701 Druid Park Lake Drive, next to the intersection of Park Ave and Druid Park Lake Drive.
- Honor the glory of Gay Street while humbly acknowledging its challenges with pedestrian gestures of hope and cheer.
- Meet 414 Old Town Mall, next to the Baltimore City Fire Museum at Gay and Orleans Streets.
- Wear your full rock gear to swamp the market and flip the switch on its power of place.
- Meet behind the old Power Plant at 601 E Pratt St, on the south side of Market Place and Pratt St.
