It finally feels as if spring is finally here, and not just on paper. Take off your jacket and come out for one of our exciting new tours or bike rides this spring! We’re especially excited to announce that our Looking Up Downtown tours return to the Baltimore Farmer’s Market this Saturday. This year, we’re also launching a new partnership with Carroll Museums, Inc. to add a tour of historic Jonestown and the inside of the Phoenix Shot Tower on the third Sunday of every month.
Join us at the Baltimore Museum of Industry as we explore the museum’s history, architecture and recent restoration inside and out! Restoration architect Carol Quigley of Frens and Frens Architects will share her knowledge on a tour of the outside and Roland H. Woodward, BMI’s director, will give us a true behind the scenes look at the making of the exhibits and the redesigned interior.
Finally, please save the date for our 2014 Preservation Awards Celebration on June 19, 2014 at the award-winning home of the Baltimore Design School. I hope you can join us!
