Finding the Love: How to Appreciate Baltimore’s Curious Empty Buildings with Architect and Artist Jerome Gray
October 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
From the Modernist Kagro Building at the corner of North and Maryland Avenues to the New Refuge Deliverance Cathedral at St. Paul and Chase Streets that has been covered in scaffolding for over a decade, Baltimore contains a number of distinct buildings that are highly visible, curiously vacant, and all but overlooked in plain sight. Architect and artist Jerome Gray will discuss his research into who built these places, who occupied them, who were supposed to be their stewards, and how these seemingly dull places actually contribute to Baltimore’s built environment.
Mr. Gray’s discussion will combine his research into the histories of several buildings, comments on them as an architect and artist, and a presentation of his own artwork celebrating them as part of Baltimore’s urban fabric. Please join us for the talk at 5:30 and stay for a wine and cheese reception. Both are free!
We are pleased to be sponsoring this event in partnership with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, which is handling registration.
This talk is part of Free Fall Baltimore which is presented by BGE, and is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
