Opening reception: Saturday, June 15, 2013 6-8 pm
Baltimore From Many Perspectives is an exhibition featuring nine interconnected Baltimore artists and young artists and dancers from ConneXions School for the Arts, a middle/high school on Baltimore's west side. In this exhibition, each artist chosen to participate by the curator was a part of selecting the remaining artists. Each artist was asked to invite an artist that he or she is connected to but also different from. The exhibition grew organically to include artists of many backgrounds and various mediums including painting, digital media, sound, ceramic, printmaking, mixed media and performance.
Curated by Sarah McCann, this exhibition includes work of Person Ablach, Robert Bilek, John Bohl, Colin Campbell, Jenny Graf, Paula Phillips, Olivia Robinson, Ernest Shaw and Christine Stiver and students from ConneXions School for the Arts who worked with Paula Phillips to create artwork for the exhibition and dance pieces that will be performed at the opening.
D center Baltimore is hosting the exhibition from June 15 to July 21, 2013. The opening reception will be held on June 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. D center is located at 16 W.

Screening/Discussion: Black Athena
Saturday, July 20th 6pm
Please join us for the viewing of the extended version of the short documentary Black Athena. The documentary explores the work of Martin Bernal, whose three-volume work Black Athena "ignited an academic debate by arguing that the African and Semitic lineage of Western civilization had been scrubbed from the record of ancient Greece by 18th- and 19th-century historians steeped in the racism of their times," according to his obituary in the New York Times. A guided discussion will follow the screening.
