David Carlson: Works on Paper
Sept 16,  Allday, Free

A series of spontaneous works on paper explore the interaction of elements reflected in drawings that shift from yang to yin energies. Like a conversation between two beings, patterns develop and opposition and balance between stillness and movement lead to understanding the connectedness of diverse energy lying below the apparent qualities of ink and paint.

The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen
September 16, 2014, 10am – 5pm, $8

A little bit Forrest Gump, a little bit Indiana Jones, 100% real. Discover the most extraordinary Baltimorean you’ve never heard of! The Jewish Museum of Maryland and The Maryland Historical Society invite you on a journey to put together the puzzle of one man’s life. It’s a journey full of twists,

turns, and missing clues.
Throughout history, Mendes Cohen was there.
At Ft. McHenry when the bombs were bursting in air; at the Supreme Court when states’ rights were at stake; in Paris when the people prepared the barricades; at the Vatican for the installation of a new pope; down the Nile to collect artifacts; in Jerusalem as the first American tourist; in Annapolis when arguments raged over fugitive slaves; on the board of the nation’s first railroad.
