A lot has happened since this project first began so many months ago. Connections made, powerful expressions, and the greatest of all: love. Love has been seen, explored, analyzed, discussed… stories heard and stories felt. It has been a joy to be a part of this process – to see it come together in such a beautiful way.
I’ve met so many incredible people through these months, so many people that I am proud to call friends. One of these friends connected me to a larger project that is happening nationally: the Baltimore Love Project. Artist Michael Owen has painted 27 love mural all over the city of Baltimore and has started taking his love, and his art, across the country.
I am so proud to announce that Michael will be painting a love mural on the side of Plan B this summer. There will be great collaborations with businesses, artists, and organizations that will work together to make this a “Summer of Love” here in town.
Love is Love.
Love is such a powerful experience, let’s make this strong.
See details and a writeup in the Cap Times on the Summer of Love here.
Coming up on June 28th there will be a workshop from 9am-1pm at the Bubbler, hosted by me, where I will bring back many of the interactive components that were featured in the exhibition reception night. Pieces will serve to connect community through art and experience, as was the goal of the reception night and exhibition (that is still continuing through June). This will be available for all ages, that will speak of this love Discourse project in town, as well as offer ideas, coloring pages, information and more on the Baltimore Love Project.
Thursday, July 10 and Friday, June 11 Michael will be painting the love mural on the side of Plan B.
Friday, July 11th will feature a concert, also at the Bubbler, from 830-midnight, where bands Flavor that Kills and Cowboy Winter will be playing for their Night Light event. Forequarter will be providing drinks that evening. It will also be the beginning of artist/maker and friend Joe Kerman, with Sector 67, who will be the artist-in-residence at the Bubbler in July and August. Remember the robot, yeah, that’s the guy 🙂 This will be an event to celebrate love in town – what we have seen, what we love, and what we will be building more of.
Saturday, July 12 Michael will be presenting at the Bubbler and offering more information and sharing his art with the community.
I would also love to thank the community for this great support. The discourse that was shared, interpreted, and discussed was overwhelmingly positive. More details and pictures of the exhibition and more artists that contributed to come over the course of this next week.’
