My only question is: Can we keep it forever?????? Please??? Pretty Please???! This space is such a long, weird hallway – the step by step sequential design of this thing is perfect. Each image evolves with your natural walking pace – it really makes every step you take a lively surprise.

Reinvent – Artists: Lauren Adams, Christina Beard and Christopher McCampbell

Maryland Art Place is pleased to announce the creation of a public art project at 8 Market Place, Power Plant Live! in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Reinvent, a dynamic 70-foot-long wall installation, heralds one of MAP’s newest initiatives: a series of urban art projects to be presented outside the nonprofit contemporary art center’s galleries. Reinvent will be on view through December 2010.

MAP offered this creative opportunity to graduate students working with Ellen Lupton, director of the Graphic Design MFA program at Maryland Institute College of Art. Artist collaborators Lauren Adams, Christina Beard and Christopher McCampbell responded to MAP’s vision for broader community engagement in their site-specific design. Conceived for the hallway that leads to MAP’s galleries, Reinvent represents innovation and change in a series of shifting motifs. The linear cut-vinyl display begins with a city stoplight, and continues through evolving emblems of nature and culture to end in a wall-sized 3-D digital network.

Along with weird horse names and laying a bet, the fashion at Preakness and other Triple Crown races is oddly traditional, a pageant of who's who in pastel suits, bowties, fancy hats, and floral dresses.
