WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … Again climbed lofty heights again!

Prior to its grand opening, Baltimore’s dynamic Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn created one of their signature murals on Union Craft Brewing in the new Union Collective at 1700 W. 41st Street in the Hampden-Medfield neighborhood. Their use of color, shape and pattern is striking. The closer you approach the mural the more intriguing the patterns and shapes within patterns and shapes becomes. You gotta check out this fascinating mural … and enjoy all that the Union Collective will soon have to offer.

MEMORIAL TO HENRIETTA LACKS

Henrietta Lacks _ 33

Headlining today’s post … Henrietta Lacks & Johns Hopkins … early morning light on the mural by Gaia

Henrietta Lacks was an African American woman who died at a young age of cervical cancer in 1951. Unbeknownst to her or her family, Johns Hopkins Hospital biopsied her tumor during her treatment there. While most human cells survive only a few days in the laboratory, Henrietta Lacks’ cells had a unique indestructible characteristic. Medical researcher Dr. George Otto Gey used her cells to create a strain known today as the HeLa cell line. Since its discovery and creation, researchers such as Jonas Salk have used the immortal HeLa cell line to transform medical science and discover treatments for a variety of diseases. The book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot is a fascinating read.

SOWEBO/SOWETO PHOTO EXHIBIT

Sowebo Soweto Gallery 788 opening

Sowebo Soweto Gallery 788 opening

Last evening Gallery 788 in Hampden opened its month-long exhibit Sowebo/Soweto which features work by the preeminent and universally-beloved photographer Martha Cooper.

For a number of years Martha has been documenting street life in Southwest Baltimore. In this exhibit she illustrates and demonstrates the similarities of life in Southwest Baltimore (Sowebo) and the Southwest Townships (Soweto) in Johannesburg, South Africa. You will find the similarities striking and the photos quite evocative. I particularly enjoyed her step sitter series. Baltimoreans love to sit on their front stoops.

Artists came from New York, Baltimore, and places in between to show support for and appreciation of Martha, who has photographed them over the years: Chris Stain, Katey Truhn and Jessie Unterhalter, Logan Hicks, Nether, Pablo Machioli, Richard Best, Toven, and many more.

The Soweto/Soweto show runs through February 28th at Gallery 788, 3602 Hickory Avenue, Hampden. More information about Gallery 788 here.
