Celebrating Latino Culture at the Creative Alliance

Latino Culture at Creative Alliance

catch of the day fish (2)Baltimore’s amazing cultural diversity is one of our city’s strengths. And part of living in such a diverse place is celebrating the rich tapestry of cultures that make up this place we call home. Sure, the US is known as a “melting pot” but it’s also important to take note of the things that make each individual culture unique. We don’t just melt into each other, we shine in our uniqueness and our differences are part of what makes us who are. And on that note, we’re thrilled about this month’s opening of Chicanismo y Latinismo, a group exhibition at the Creative Alliance that explores how the Chicano movement has continued to evolve by moving beyond its West Coast origins and expanding to include a multiplicity of Latino identities.  Read More →

Bold New Highlandtown Bus Stop Gains National Attention

Bus stop in Highlandtown

They call it “BUS”

In mid-July, the Spanish artist collective mmm… installed an interactive public sculpture in Highlandtown. Recently, it’s been written up at Design Taxi and CityLab.

The Creative Alliance teamed with the Southeast Community Development Corporation to bring the permanent art project, titled “BUS,” to Baltimore. As you can see in the photo, the sculpture spells out the word bus in all caps, with letters 14 feet high and seven feet deep. Yes, a bus stops there. And, yes, you can sit on it. And yes, your kids will probably try to climb up to the second story of the B. Read More →

Learn to Make Ice Cream at the Patterson Park Library

Ice cream

catch of the day fish (2)The Enoch Pratt Free Library is inviting you to, “celebrate America’s independence by learning to make homemade ice cream.” While the exact relationship between ice cream and our nation’s founding does elude us, we’re not going to quibble, since that might result in us not getting to learn how to make the stuff or enjoy the fruits of those labors. We’ll just settle for knowing that ice cream was in fact brought here from Europe during colonial days and that founding fathers such as Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were known fans of the stuff; which we suppose you could extrapolate to mean that ice cream basically fueled the American Revolution. In fact, that’s probably a pretty safe assumption to make. Wouldn’t they need a nice cold treat after trudging through battlefields in knee-high boots and wool uniforms? Surely. Read More →

LGBT FIlm Fest

catch of the day fish (2)If this year’s Maryland Film Festival is already seeming like a distant memory, and you’ve begun to crave another hit of off-beat, independent films, the Creative Alliance has your number. This weekend, they run the 3rd annual Charm City LGBT Film Festival, which promises a variety of unique and riveting films. The selections all feature LGBT themes, of course, but represent stellar film-making and make for excellent entertainment for audiences of all stripes. Each day of the festival features non-film activities, like a gallery talk or a happy hour, too—so you can get your cinema, your cocktail, and a little extra culture on the side. Read More →

Ageless Grace Dance Performance

Dance performance

catch of the day fish (2)When you imagine a professional dancer, you probably imagine someone young, lithe, and with a kind of super-human control over their body that could only come from a lack of real world experience. And yet, in so many other art forms, worldliness and life experience are often the qualities that make a true artiste. Sure, professional athletes may peak young, but an artist—even one whose craft depends upon the abilities of their body—should be able to develop and refine their craft with age, no? Well that’s just what’s being celebrated this Friday at the Creative Alliance with Ageless Grace, a dance performance featuring professional and community dancers of a certain age. Read More →

101 Ellwood Lofts and Apartments

To live in—and love—this city, is to love its skyline. We may not have the most recognizable one in the world, but like the old song says, “the prettiest place on Earth is Baltimore at night.” We agree, of course. That’s part of why we live here. Our densely-packed cityscape is full of unique architecture and buildings that hearken back to some of the golden moments of American history. And when their windows light up at night, it’s certainly something to behold. Our rich legacy as a place where immense amounts of goods were produced and shipped is written all over this town.

Fireside Chat with Mark and Jonathan

Fireside Chat

catch of the day fish (2)This Friday night, why not settle in for something a little calm and cozy? Alright, maybe not that calm and cozy. The Fireside Chat with Mark & Jonathan is described as Ed Sullivan meets Johnny Carson. But we would add—with a 21st century twist. That is, it’s not your grandpa’s fireside chat. This sort of Vaudeville-talkshow mash-up features amazing people who do amazing things (and they’ll even do some of those amazing things right before your eyes). But not only do you get to witness such feats, you get to have a nice chat with them about it, too.   Read More →
