Presentation by Blue Water Baltimore. Help transform your neighborhood’s storm drains and inform your community about the connection between our streets and streams through adopting and adorning a storm drain. This donation-based workshop is held in Blue Water Baltimore’s Remington classroom. It will give a general overview of the program and prepare community leaders to facilitate their own storm drain art projects (including the DPW application process). After attending this workshop, attendees will be permitted to check out one of our Storm Drain Stencil Kits to use for their project. Supported with a grant from Maryland Humanities Museum on Main Street program.
The Historical Society of Baltimore County (HSBC) will be the first of six Maryland sites to host Water/Ways, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, brought to the state by the Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Water/Ways will be open to the public in the historic Almshouse in Cockeysville for six weeks, from May 25 to July 6, 2019, during HSBC’s 60th anniversary year.
From Western Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore, our state is rich with water: it’s part of our history, our culture, our future. Maryland H2O shines the spotlight on it, through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street tour of the traveling exhibit Water/Ways, the Smithsonian exhibition H2O Today, and engaging programs to spark a statewide discussion about water.
This event is listed as part of Maryland Humanities’ Maryland H2O initiative and #ValueWater programming.
