baltimore-tattoo-museumThis summer, Lauren Eller is visiting some of Baltimore’s neighborhood-level museums. Like the communities they are located, these museums have a strong, colorful identity all their own Each deserves a closer look, for though they may be off the beaten track, the history held within is both harrowing and fascinating in equal turns.

The Baltimore Tattoo Museum, nestled in historic Fells Point, is a place that seeks to share the story of the tattoo. Since the late 19th century, this combination of tattoo studio and museum has preserved the rich history of the inky artform. Read More →

Black and White Founders 1

Matt Janney and his business partner Jimmy Lau showcase their line Stuart & Lau starting today.

Matthew Stuart Janney, 32, a Baltimore boy, Gilman, Vanderbilt and Columbia Business School grad, travels a lot. He’s lived in China for four years. He splits his time between Hong Kong and New York and, for the life of him, he could not find luggage that fit the bill (should we say, bag?) in the department of style, weight, versatility and water repellency. Ditto his friend Jimmy Lau, whom he met when both worked in Shanghai. So what do enterprising fellas do? They put their creativity and education to use to design, manufacture and market their own line of luggage. Read More →

Welcome to ‘Now We Are 50’ a new monthly column about the stage in life when children are grown, careers have happened — or not — and we wonder, ‘What’s next?’

Back in rainy, cool May when summer still seemed like a dream, I walked to a nearby playground with my sister-in-law and three of her five kids, in Baltimore for a visit. It had been a long time since I had spent any time near a jungle gym, slide, or monkey bars.

My eight-year-old niece pulled me into the playhouse and pointed out the real windows and the loft. “I’d like one of these in my backyard,” she said. “I could get a cat and live on my own.” My four-year-old nephew kept drawing our attention with daring feats, making it hard to have a conversation.
