catch of the day fish (2)Those kids over at MICA are known for creating some amazingly beautiful stuff and some amazingly weird stuff. But since 2009, a dedicated group of them have also committed to making some amazingly scary stuff– at least for Halloween. And so the MICA Haunted House Club is proud to bring us the 2014 MICA Haunted House. It’s the only one in Baltimore City, apparently and is a pretty large scale, intricately detailed, immersive, and genuinely horrifying haunted house. This year, they’ve apparently even upped their game–so who knows what horrors lie in store?

Current owner loved this stoic town home.  Almost completely renovated in 2007/08, the home has all of the modern luxuries one could ask for, including a gourmet kitchen, beautiful baths, and updated systems.  The beautiful historical details of the home were lovingly preserved, maintaining one of the biggest attractions to this neighborhood- the architectural craftsmanship.

Fashion Awards MD 2014

Fashion Awards

catch of the day fish (2)We love following local fashion designers and tastemakers. It combines a life-long passion for couture with our dedication to supporting local culture and small business. Plus, in recent years, Baltimore has only grown as a hotspot where young creative geniuses can start a life and make their visions thrive. So thank goodness someone had the bright idea a few years ago to start up Fashion Awards MD—an award night that highlights, celebrates and recognizes the talents of those who have made contributions to the fashion industry in the state of Maryland and beyond. This year will be the third of its kind; last year’s events both sold out (of course), so take it from us: if local fashion is your thing, get those tickets today. Read More →

Stephanie Barber’s Daredevils at MICA

dance-A-2

catch of the day fish (2)The 2014 Maryland Film Festival is still a ways off, but regardless, this week we get a unique opportunity to catch a new film by one of our favorite local multimedia artists– Stephanie Barber. If you’re not familiar with Barber’s work, this week’s screening of her new film, Daredevils could be a great introduction. Her narratives dance between being weighted in play, emotionalism, story, and humor. All throughout, bubbles of intimacy are blown and popped, and begin to be blown again. It’s not quite your traditional narrative film, but it’s not just video art, either. If this sounds like the kind of unpredictable type of cinema you crave, be sure to catch it at this week’s special screening at Falvey Hall in MICA’s Brown Center. Read More →

MICA’s Spring Calendar of Art Exhbitions

MICA Spring

catch of the day fish (2)So technically, spring is right around the corner, but most of us are still on the “I’ll believe it when I see it” train. This means we’re still filling up our calendars with nice indoor activities that go well with the quiet and stillness of winter. We’ve been taking in art shows galore all winter, and are so excited to keep it up this month and next with MICA’s fabulous media offerings featuring some tributes to Baltimore’s own artistic history. Highlights of the spring schedule include a never-before-seen exhibition of personal objects, artifacts and artworks by Johnny Eck (one of Baltimore’s most famous citizens) and Picture Windows, an exhibition of Baltimore’s famous painted window screens that remains open through March 16th.

Live In Bolton Hill, Walk To (Train To) D.C.: Three Story Townhouse Near MARC, MICA

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013 12:06pm

 

Hot House: 226 Lanvale Street, Baltimore, 21217

 

Lanvale:front

Victorian townhouse in brick, circa 1900, three stories with partially finished basement. 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2,460 sq. ft. with crown moldings, hardwood floors, front bow window, brick patio, rear garden, central a/c: $445,000 

 

Lanvale:entrance

What: A substantial city house at a good Bolton Hill address,   even more accessible to Washington now that the MARC train’s running on weekends. It’s been partially renovated, and while the kitchen and bathrooms want cosmetic updating, the house is certainly in move-in condition, and the systems are good. There is an unusual entrance feature of a glass wall, paned like a window, running between the living room and the hallway — the idea being to keep the entrance hall from being a long, dark corridor. In fact, the entrance is flooded with light, and the overall effect is bright and modern,  just unexpected. The large dining room is across the hall, and the kitchen (an eventual redo) is at the back, with stairs leading out to the quaint back garden and patio. A half bath is also on the first floor.

Second floor has a large sunny room with a big bow window, which would make a nice family room, shelves already in place. The third floor has potential for a great master bedroom suite — currently it’s a large bedroom (again with the bow window), a small bedroom and a full bath.  If you are Ok with doing some renovation, this is a house worth the investment.

Where: If Baltimore were Manhattan, Bolton Hill would be the Upper East Side. It’s one of Baltimore’s most beautiful neighborhoods, a world apart from the more entertainment-packed venues of Harbor East, Canton, Federal Hill and even Mt. Vernon. While it’s true that Bolton Hill does not have much in the way of night life — with the exception of the brilliant B Bistro on Bolton Street — its well groomed streets and imposing townhouses are increasingly in-demand with D.C. commuters and people working in and around Station North. Number 226 Lanvale Street is about a half mile from Penn Station — a 10-minute walk or a 4-minute taxi ride. The Bolton Swim and Tennis club down the street is a major summer destination — price: $800 per family, per year, less for individual memberships.  The Baltimore Montessori School is nearby for grades preK-8, ditto the Midtown Academy, and the beloved Bolton Hill Nursery School is moving from Brown Memorial Church into new space in a landmark house (formerly Family and Children’s Services) on Lanvale Street. Besides B Bistro, there’s the coffee at On The Hill Café, and the pizza at Two Boots. Your local is the Mt. Royal Tavern, a fantastic dive bar, full of artists. And with North Avenue fast becoming a destination…you’ll be well-placed.

Why: Wide, quiet, tree-lined streets. Elegant old buildings. Proximity to trains.

Why Not:  It’s still the city. You need to stay alert when walking after dark, and remember not to leave valuables in the car.

NB: House backs onto Lollypop Lane, site of popular monthly neighborhood parties.
