Here’s an engagement that should capitalize on any local’s love for Baltimore’s impressive architecture and the tremendous history its streets hold: The opening of a photo exhibition all about Baltimore’s blocks, hosted at a grand, early-20th century mansion in Mt. Vernon-Belvedere.
The venue, City House Baltimore, is one of the city’s newest co-working and office spaces, adapted from a manse built in the 1900s that still holds many of its original trappings, including a dozen marble fireplaces, a brass-accentuated spiral staircase and original mahogany woodwork.
The show will present six years’ worth of shots by local photographer James Singewald. Per a Tumblr page for the exhibition, “Baltimore: A History, Block-by-Block” is a thoroughly researched project consisting of images of approximately 100 city blocks, taken with a four-by-five-inch view camera and Fujichrome Velvia slide film. Singewald will also be selling his photos of Baltimore’s iconic streets, as well as a book featuring hundreds of them in one collection.
There will be also music, plenty of local beer and food to enjoy as you immerse yourself in some local history.
Free, 6-9 p.m., 6 E. Eager Street, more info here.
