The Baltimore Satellite Reef at Gallery City Arts

May 3 – June 28

GALLERY CA
Curated by: Deana Haggag
Through Friday, June 28
City Arts Apartments: 440 E. Oliver St.

The Baltimore Satellite Reef (BSR), a satellite of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project (HCCR), facilitated by artist Karida Collins is coming to Gallery CA.

Community members young and old from all around Baltimore City have crocheted this enormous coral reef replica. The larger HCCR project began in 2005 with Christine and Margaret Wertheim, of the Institute for Figuring, in response to the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. The HCCR is a community arts project that creates new methods to engage the public about scientific and environmental issues. With an unusual fusion of mathematics, marine biology, handicraft, collective art practice and environmental consciousness, the BSR will be a unique and distinct part of what may be the largest community arts and science project in the world. Because of the flexibility of the formula and creativity of each community, it will be totally unique from the others, much like the ocean’s living coral reefs.

*WST, SSY: Every week Bmoreart’s contributors travel around town to view the art showing in and around Baltimore City. ‘We Saw This, So Should You’ is a new series where we post photos from these exhibitions to give the work greater exposure. Obviously, photos are inadequate in capturing the inherent qualities of these works. Art is always best viewed in person, so we recommend that you do so, whenever possible.
