MICA Pinkard Gallery: Nicole Herbert

This past Sunday I came across artist Nicole Herbert, now showing at MICA in the Pinkard Gallery . The photos on display site a few walls and walkways surrounding the Institute that have a missing brick. By making her own mold she returned to these spots and delicately replaced what had gone missing with a white plaster brick.

A Design Center for Baltimore?

photo by: alyssa Haven’t had a chance to tell you about it yet but thought some of you would still find hearing about the Design Center Meeting relevant and news worthy. Held at the end of June at the Load of Fun Studios on North Avenue and loosely organized by the AIA, we discussed the whats and whys and purpose of a Design Center in a city like Baltimore. Mostly attended by architects, a couple of artists, journalists and school-teachers we talked about how to improve urban conditions and provide outreach to city residents. Other topics included how to enact “cross-fertilization of all design disciplines” and inspire action within our post industrial city.
