- I had the pleasure of meeting Kerry Stanley recently. Kerry, with her husband, lived at 520 S Dallas Street and unearthed the "Douglass Place" engraving on the home while renovating in 1981. This ultimately led to Douglass Place being recognized as a national historic site in 1983. . I had come across Kerry's name while doing my own research into the history of the homes (see my earlier posts). However, I was not aware that she, with the assistance of Leroy Graham, researcher and author of book, "Baltimore, the 19th Century Black Capitol," is responsible for submitting the petition/application to have Douglass Place listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Kerry learned of my efforts from the recent Baltimore Sun article and contacted me for a visit. We spoke at length of "old times" in the neighborhood and all the new development in the area. Good talks! Kerry also gifted me with an impressively robust and detailed library of all the research that was done to have Douglass Place listed as a national historic site. This library includes property records, news articles covering the homes dating back to the 1890s and the original application submit to the national registry! There are very many gems in this lot; so much so that I plan to create an installation in Douglass House to showcase it! <--- More on this later! . Kerry has since moved from 520 Dallas but was very enthused that I cared so much to continue to preserve and highlight the history of these homes. "I didn't know why I kept all that [documentation] for all these years until I read your article," she said. "Now I know." . Thanks Kerry!!!

- #delitamartin Delita Martin "Little Girl (no. 2)" 2014, Gelatin Printing, Conte, Hand Drawing and Decorative Papers 30x22in . Working from oral traditions, vintage and family photographs as a source of inspiration, Martin’s work explores the power of the narrative impulse. Her process of layering various printmaking, drawing, sewing collaging and painting techniques allow her to create portrait that fuse the real and the fantastic. In her work, she combines signs and symbols to create visual language. By fusing this visual language with oral storytelling, she offers other identities and other narratives for women of color. . Martin’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Most recently, Martin’s work was included in State of the Arts: Discovering American Art Now, an exhibition that included 101 artists from around the United States. Also, in 2015 she was recognized by the International Review of African American Art as one of 16 African American artists to watch as they gain national and international acclaim. . http://galeriemyrtis.net/delita-martin/ @galeriemyrtis . #blackartist #blackarts #blackart #blackartsupport #africanamericanhistory #africanamericanhistoryandculture #contemporaryart #nationalregistryofhistoricplaces #frederickdouglass #bmorehistoric #preservemd #airbnb #homeaway #fellspoint #harboreast #blackhistory #mybmore #thebmorecreatives

- #alisonsaar Alison Saar "Compton Nocturne" 2012; 19.5 x 22.5in Lithograph on rice paper. Signed and numbered 21/28 . Employing both found and traditional artistic materials, Alison Saar’s sculptures and assemblages meditate on a range of experiences related to the African diaspora and femininity. The daughter of the artist Betye Saar, she continues her mother’s attention to the marginalization of both women and minorities. Often working with female nudes, Saar is among a larger generation of artists who recognize the body as a site of identity formation, acknowledging historical injustices and presenting defiant figures that seem to transcend their pasts. Saar refers very directly to her own struggles with her biracial identity in her works. Also, referencing African and Afro-Caribbean art, she often alludes to mythological narratives or rituals that fuel notions of history and identity. . These days the works by Alison Saar can be found in the collections of major American museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, The Baltimore Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and she also has work on public display in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. . She has had solo exhibitions at Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC, the Brooklyn Museum, High Museum in Atlanta, OMI International Arts Center in Ghent, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Springfield Art Museum, UCLA’s Fowler Museum of Cultural History, and Santa Monica Museum of Art. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The New Museum in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Getty Center in Los Angeles, The Studio Museum in Harlem, among many other institutions. Saar has been awarded many distinguished grants, honors, and residencies including awards from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Guggenheim Foundation. . #blackartist #blackarts #contemporaryart #nationalregistryofhistoricplaces #frederickdouglass #bmorehistoric #preservemd #airbnb #homeaway #fellspoint #harboreast #blackhistory #mybmore
