WEAR IT OUT BALTIMORE
FASHION & FILM SERIES @ CREATIVE ALLIANCE PREMIERING
Thursday, February 5, 2015/6-10pm
Created to celebrate the fine arts genre of fashion with selected films and documentaries, acknowledge Baltimore’s emerging garment making and manufacturing industry with themed Wear It Out Baltimore (WIOB) showcase segments featuring area clothing and accessories designers, stylists, fiber artists, and clothiers.
Before Tuesday, it cost money to put a bike rack outside of your small business. A new City policy aims to roll back the small business fees.
Baltimore’s amazing cultural diversity is one of our city’s strengths. And part of living in such a diverse place is celebrating the rich tapestry of cultures that make up this place we call home. Sure, the US is known as a “melting pot” but it’s also important to take note of the things that make each individual culture unique. We don’t just melt into each other, we shine in our uniqueness and our differences are part of what makes us who are. And on that note, we’re thrilled about this month’s opening of Chicanismo y Latinismo, a group exhibition at the Creative Alliance that explores how the Chicano movement has continued to evolve by moving beyond its West Coast origins and expanding to include a multiplicity of Latino identities.
The Creative Alliance teamed with the Southeast Community Development Corporation to bring the permanent art project, titled “BUS,” to Baltimore. As you can see in the photo, the sculpture spells out the word bus in all caps, with letters 14 feet high and seven feet deep. Yes, a bus stops there. And, yes, you can sit on it. And yes, your kids will probably try to climb up to the second story of the B.

The Enoch Pratt Free Library is inviting you to, “celebrate America’s independence by learning to make homemade ice cream.” While the exact relationship between ice cream and our nation’s founding does elude us, we’re not going to quibble, since that might result in us not getting to learn how to make the stuff or enjoy the fruits of those labors. We’ll just settle for knowing that ice cream was in fact brought here from Europe during colonial days and that founding fathers such as Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were known fans of the stuff; which we suppose you could extrapolate to mean that ice cream basically fueled the American Revolution. In fact, that’s probably a pretty safe assumption to make. Wouldn’t they need a nice cold treat after trudging through battlefields in knee-high boots and wool uniforms? Surely.
If this year’s Maryland Film Festival is already seeming like a distant memory, and you’ve begun to crave another hit of off-beat, independent films, the Creative Alliance has your number. This weekend, they run the 3rd annual Charm City LGBT Film Festival, which promises a variety of unique and riveting films. The selections all feature LGBT themes, of course, but represent stellar film-making and make for excellent entertainment for audiences of all stripes. Each day of the festival features non-film activities, like a gallery talk or a happy hour, too—so you can get your cinema, your cocktail, and a little extra culture on the side.
When you imagine a professional dancer, you probably imagine someone young, lithe, and with a kind of super-human control over their body that could only come from a lack of real world experience. And yet, in so many other art forms, worldliness and life experience are often the qualities that make a true artiste. Sure, professional athletes may peak young, but an artist—even one whose craft depends upon the abilities of their body—should be able to develop and refine their craft with age, no? Well that’s just what’s being celebrated this Friday at the Creative Alliance with Ageless Grace, a dance performance featuring professional and community dancers of a certain age.
