From Rockville to Westminster, I’ve been keeping busy this fall orchestrating back-to-back tours of Maryland’s sub/urban ambiguity. For those of you living in the reaches north of Baltimore, this next tour is for you! Explore the invisible sites, commanding vistas, and meaningful connections between McDaniel College and Union Street in Westminster, Maryland through New Public Sites – McDaniel / Westminster. Developed in collaboration with students and residents for the exhibition Alternative Cartographies, this walking tour and multimedia gallery installation investigates the overlooked yet meaningful public spaces between an idyllic hilltop and historic neighboring streets. Featuring sites such as the Epic Embankment, VistaBowl, Sidewalk Signatures, and Boys & Girls Club, New Public Sites – McDaniel / Westminster discovers how pedestrians activate intriguing moments between learning and leisure.
New Public Sites – McDaniel / Westminster is presented in conjunction with Alternative Cartographies: Artists Claiming Public Space, curated by Izabel Galliera and soon to be on display in the Rice Gallery at McDaniel College. Galliera states: “This exhibition brings together six contemporary international artists, Matei Bejenaru, Graham Coreil-Allen, Jason Hoylman, Daniela Kostova, Olivia Robinson, and Miryana Todorova, who are concerned with the subversive potential of cartography.”
