Did you know there is a ship graveyard in Baltimore’s Curtis Creek? Join us for a talk by Maryland’s State Underwater Archaeologist, Dr. Susan Langley, to discover the submerged and hidden vessels off of Hawkins Point! Although known mostly as the home of the U.S. Coast Guard since 1897, the bustling waterfront industries of Curtis Bay and Creek have long included shipyards and other maritime businesses. So it's not unusual that these waters contain a disproportionate number of scrapped and abandoned vessels. What is surprising is the nature and histories of many of these watercraft, which include mid-19th century schooners to the last passenger steamers operating as recently as 1963.

Baltimore Deco: Architectural Optimism in the Interwar Years (Virtual Talk)

March 18 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual MD United States
By Donation

This talk will consider how an international design movement, Art Deco, found its way into Baltimore during the 1920s and '30s. Fueled by a robust manufacturing sector, the city became fertile ground for a wide-ranging architecture that mixed freely with the prevailing design trends of the day (albeit leaning toward the traditional); an important representative of America’s major industrial cities in the interwar years. Lesser-known examples of Baltimore Deco will be shared, and the talk will also highlight a few optimistic building projects undertaken in the midst of the Great Depression.
