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 →

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 →
