The Guardians is a photo documentary and storytelling project that celebrates the unrecognized community work of Black female leaders from across Baltimore City neighborhoods. By uplifting their stories and experiences through recorded interviews and large-scale photographs, we honor how the union of art and activism can make real, lasting change that can help us see realities and (re)shape culture. The Guardians is a platform for women who spend their lives fighting for better, more equitable communities.
Please join us in celebrating our second cohort of 12 Guardians with new portraits and oral histories, now representing all corners of Baltimore City. Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served. There will be a speaking portion of the event to hear from the Guardians, lead artists, and Mayor Scott.Learn more
