It’s a common misconception that artists live glamorous lives. They wax poetic about muses and live with little to no obligations, creating only beauty to rouse discussions that will ultimately altar society.
This is, of course, not true. While the best work they create definitely sparks important discussions about life, about culture, about religion, they do so much beyond waxing poetic and have a wealth of obligations. They have deadlines to meet, pennies to pinch, and pieces to create.
Once a month, the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower opens its doors to the public so we may have the great privilege of seeing works in progress. Recently named a Baltimore Icon by WTMD, it plays a prominent role in defining our skyline and has been watching (no pun intended) over the city for over 100 years. Swing on by, soak in the history, and thank the artists that bring life and culture to this town.
