Catch of the Day, Mt. Vernon

Celebrate Halloween at the 13th Floor

13th Floor

catch of the day fish (2)Some buildings don’t even have a 13th floor out of superstition. But then, doesn’t that make an actual 13th floor the perfect setting for a genuinely chilling Halloween? Well, it might not actually be the scariest Halloween venue in town, but it’s more than likely the classiest. The newly renovated 13th Floor is holding an inaugural Halloween fete on All Hallow’s Eve itself, and we’re all invited. There will be a costume contest, live music, and all of the fabulous food, drink, and service you’d expect there any day of the year.

BDS_2014 Open House Flyerfrom the BDS website:
 

Designing Baltimore, One Student at a Time

Baltimore Design School is a public middle-high school that focuses on design.  In the high school, students will learn the basics of Fashion Design, Architecture, and Graphic Design. In the fall of 2011 the school started with grades 6 and 7, adding a new 6th grade each year, so that by 2016, the school will be a full 6-12 school

The Baltimore Design School believes that all students, with good instruction and practice, can learn art and design skills and achieve high standards in their academic programs. We value student interests in drawing, making things, fashion ideas, creative problem-solving, three-dimensional abilities, planning and building, and communicating visually through graphics. We love students who see problems that need new solutions, who envision possibilities, and imagine a better world.

We believe our graduates will be leading designers and architects of the future who see design as a way of thinking, problem-solving, and living a productive and rewarding life.

MICA Named 10th ‘Most Hipster’ Campus in US

MICA, 10th most hipster campus in US

I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention. I may have otherwise never had a chance to read these opening sentences: “Hipsters appreciate more than rocking flannel and chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon. They also appreciate skinny jeans, bands you never heard of and, above all, a place of higher learning where they’re able to find like-minded individuals.”

Remember, people, hipsters are not just about the flannel and Pabst! They’re also way, way about the jeans! (It’d have to be about more than flannel and PBR, or else most of my Northern New York redneck relatives — whom I adore — would qualify.) Read More →

The Campbell Dance Experience at Theatre Project

Campbell Dance

catch of the day fish (2)Even for those of us who consider ourselves real culture vultures, I’m gonna bet that most of us just don’t see that much dance on the regular. We may go to plays, films, concerts and lectures, but for many, dance can be a little less on our radar. Even if we like to go out dancing, or take dance classes (Zumba, anyone?) when we think of watching dance performance, many times, our only point of reference is The Nutcracker. Luckily, you can change all that this Friday, with a special, one-night only performance at Theatre Project from The Campbell Dance Experience– some of the most remarkable contemporary dance that the city has to offer.
