Join me for a night of radical pedestrianism through Visionary Crosswalks in the Alley OOOPs! show at this year’s Transmodern Festival. Visionary Crosswalks is a direct action crosswalk tracing the casual path that jaywalkers regularly take when crossing Mulberry Street while walking down Tyson Alley along in the west side of downtown Baltimore. Colorful adhesive tape will alert motorists to the festival goers parading pathway as they walk to the D:Center at Maryland Art Place from Current Gallery and back. Serving as a voluntary crossing guard, complete with hand-made uniform, I will assist pedestrians as they enjoy their downtown art drift.
Thank you to everyone who joined me on the New Public Sites – Arlington Drift walking tour last Saturday. From undead condo projects to underground rivers, I learned a lot during our hour-long journey together. I hope you enjoyed seeing Balston’s invisible sites as much as I did. May our floating zone of radical pedestrianism continue with infinite freedom.

Between a suburban strip mall and its urban surroundings there lies a poetic amalgam of spaces both epic and discrete. Situated within the disparate zone where the Trinidad neighborhood and the Atlas District overlap, the New Public Sites walking tour will investigate some of the invisible sites and overlooked features within our everyday environment. On the surface we will engage pavement, piles, gates and poles. Through the terrain we will explore berms, screens, voids and vistas. The tour will last approximately thirty-five minutes and traverse a wandering path under one mile in length.
All tours meet at the New Public Sites Kiosk in the Conner Contemporary courtyard. Please arrive 15 minutes early, as tours will leave promptly as scheduled.
