Bmore Music Picks: Baltimore Music, Concerts and [...]

BmoreArt couldn’t be more thrilled to host NY-based artist Rashid Johnson as the first in a new series of artist talks. Together with Mera Rubell, Johnson will discuss his ideas, recent work, and the two will discuss the evolution of his career and the relationship between an artist and collector.

Johnson and Rubell are close friends and the two have agreed to converse informally and to respond to audience questions in the Lord Baltimore Hotel’s small theater as part of a fundraiser for BmoreArt.

If you are not familiar with Johnson’s work, consider this a short introduction from Art 21.
