The most popular story on Baltimore Fishbowl this week was Ed Gunts’ weekly column containing details about The Contemporary’s newest planned exhibit, which will reopen the Hutzler Brothers Palace Building department store for the first time in three decades.

The show, called “The Ground,” will transform the former store inside the building at Howard and Clay streets into a labyrinth-like showcase of artist Michael Jones McKean’s sculpture and other physical creations. In addition to a special exhibit featuring a renowned artist, guests can enjoy a chance to see the inside of the flagship Hutzler’s department store that hasn’t been open to the public for a very, very long time. The show opens tomorrow and runs through May 19.
