Trip to Baltimore: Current Space

Saturday night, our first night in Baltimore, happened to be the closing reception for the last exhibit at a gallery called Current Space, as the building it currently occupies is scheduled for imminent demolition. The gallery was about a 15 minute walk from our hotel, so we figured we might as well check it out, since it would be our last opportunity to go. Ever.

We could spot it from about a block away, as it was the only building with cute animals painted on the outside.

It's hard to see, but the construction in the window is an elaborate system of drinking straws that connect from a funnel outside the building and into a variety of potted plants, the idea being to water the plants by diverting rain. It would have been kind of amazing had it worked, but the state of the plants (shriveled and brown) leads me to think otherwise.

Other than that there was a lot of so-so stuff. I liked the large embroidered tapestry of a building (perhaps this one). We left long before the performance piece on teen angst that was scheduled for later on, and instead ate delicious vegetarian food. But I'm glad we stopped by.
