HOODIES: Echoes in Culture
Wall Reliefs and Related Works by: ASHLEY MILBURN
September 5 – September 21, 2008

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 5, 6-8 pm
Regular Hours: Sat / Sun 1:00 pm -5:00 pm

Ashley Milburn is a Cultural organizer and OSI Fellow who, through The Culture Works Project, is currently working with several organizations and the city of Baltimore to facilitate the development of cultural assets in West Baltimore. Culture Works grew out of a 2007 internship from the Maryland Institute College of Art’s graduate community arts program. Mr. Milburn developed a thesis exploring the cultural reuse of unused public spaces along the “Highway to Nowhere’, a 3 mile east-west stretch of dead-end expressway displacing 19,000 residents in the 1960’s leaving 52 acres of unused public spaces neglected for over forty years.
