This art exhibit and event pairs artists and longtime west Baltimore residents to create work surrounding the 50th anniversary of 1968, centered on the stories and lives of the five residents. The history of the assassination of MLK, of the subsequent Uprising, and of Baltimore itself, will be told through their voices and, and interpreted in many art forms by their artist pairs.

At our opening event, our artist/storyteller pairs will speak, expanding upon their process, their lives, and the stories that were most influential in the creation of this work. 

Closing out the evening, the Todd Marcus Quintet will perform music from their new album On These Streets which offers a musical portrait of Sandtown-Winchester and Upton and includes music reflecting on the unrest of 2015.
