uninhibited black space II is the continuation of an exhibition celebrating the impact
of Morgan State University. This exhibition highlights the cultural impacts and
contributions of Morgan State to the greater Baltimore art scene while also seeking
support and fiscal sponsorship for Two Lane Stories, an endowment created by artist, curator, and educator Charles Mason III with the intent of providing monetary support and professional development opportunities for Baltimore visual art students, including travel along the east coast to various galleries, institutions, and conferences.

In uninhibited black space II, you will be confronted with multi-generational work

that is a representation of what it means to feel seen, to feel care and love exemplified in installation, painting, and video. The artists want the audience to sit with their work, study, hear, and understand that given the space to exist, we are beautiful, loving, and deserving of that for us. We are thinkers, we are people, we are Morgan State University.
