The Baltimore Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Baltimore), the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF), and the Baltimore Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (Bmore NOMA) announce the virtual launch of SAY IT LOUD Maryland, a new exhibition spotlighting the contributions of diverse designers to Maryland’s built environment. The exhibition includes 45 individuals representing a diversity of career levels, cultures, and backgrounds.

The physical exhibition will launch in October as part of Doors Open Baltimore and will be the first major exhibition at the new Center for Architecture and Design at One Charles Center. “We’re so proud to have SAY IT LOUD as the first major exhibition at the Center along with our partner organization Bmore NOMA. One of our primary goals at the Center is to engage the public about the contributions of diverse architects to foster justice and equity in our communities, and to build opportunities and awareness among underserved youth for careers in architecture and built environment professions.”, said Kathleen Lane, Executive Director of AIA Baltimore and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation.

Created by Beyond the Built, SAY IT LOUD is the activation of a national movement of sharing, protecting and celebrating the journey of the underrepresented to inspire the next generation. SAY IT LOUD exhibitions have been hosted in cities such as New York, Chicago, and London. “The SAY IT LOUD Maryland exhibition is a successful collaboration between the Beyond the Built Environment team and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, Bmore NOMA and AIA Baltimore! Together we identified and celebrated brilliant and talented women and BIPOC designers of Maryland! This exhibition is for the Maryland greater community and to give the much deserved recognition to the designers who sculpted the built environment.”, said Pascale Sablan, FAIA, Director of Beyond The Built Environment and SAY IT LOUD.

Programming for SAY IT LOUD Maryland will elevate the identities and contributions of diverse architects and designers with lectures and tours that testify to the provided value of their built work and its spatial impact. “We are so excited to bring this energy to Baltimore. Say It Loud has been a powerful platform to elevate the work of designers that are too often overlooked. It is so important to be able to tell our story, and it is great to be a part of this process.”, said Melanie Ray, AIA, NOMA, LEED GA, Vice President of BMORE NOMA.

The virtual SAY IT LOUD Maryland exhibition can be viewed at: A virtual panel discussion including individuals featured in the exhibition is scheduled for August 6 at 1:00 pm.

SAY IT LOUD Maryland is made possible by the Baltimore National Heritage Area Heritage Investment Grant.

ALL LIGHT, EVERYWHERE is an exploration of the shared histories of cameras, weapons, policing and justice. As surveillance technologies become a fixture in everyday life, the film interrogates the complexity of an objective point of view, probing the biases inherent in both human perception and the lens.
