On Sunday, October 5, 2008 we joined our partners at the Baltimore Museum of Art for the 2nd annual “Project Quality Time”. This is a day to encourage families to spend some quality time together at the museum. The event was well attended and fun for all.
Join us on November 9, 11:00 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Walters Art Museum for another “Project Quality Time” .
Today’s students are bombarded with television images, video games, and magazine articles/newspapers that give importance to conflict and war. Violence has become commonplace and accepted as part of our society and, for some students, it is a way of life. It is our hope that through the Pinwheels for Peace project, we can help the students make a public visual statement about their feelings about war/ peace/ tolerance/ cooperation/ harmony/ unity and, in some way, maybe, awaken the public and let them know what the next generation is thinking.
Congratulations to Geoff Grace, Overlea High art teacher! Geoff inaugurates the fall season at the Minstillation Gallery, Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore with a new minstillation opening Saturday, September 13, 2008.
