CaLL Walk: Living Boundaries

Lake Roland: Living Boundaries explores the scientific, artistic and social principles of absorption at Lake Roland, a defunct reservoir surrounded by parkland at the edge of Baltimore City. Artist Miguel Braceli seeks to approach the different boundaries and access that exist between the city, its inhabitants and the environment.  This work uses food grade paper, benign particulates and water to interrogate the concepts of absorption and particulate suspension, within the social context of racial and social segregation. From an ecological perspective this project seeks to approximate the forms of land use and its consequences on the environment, specifically, the relationships […]

Please, Sir–May I Have Another?

We did it. We made it through another year. If you watched some of those “Year in review” pieces on television, 2017 was really a horrible year. I for one went to too many funerals in 2017. Thankfully I ended my year on a high note with a trip to Fort Lauderdale, where I visited my ShipMate club brother Mike Reisig, two COMMAND MC members Mike and Marty, and took a cruise to the Dominican Republic with Thomas of the Centaur MC, Mr. Maryland Leather 2013 Bob Rose, and Mr. Maryland Leather 2007 Sir Steve. Once again my friends from […]

Here We HO Again!

I hate to admit it, but I am really not a big fan of the holiday season. It’s stressful, melancholy, and often a recipe for disappointment. We are often reminded of younger days, miss those who are no longer with us, and discover that our holiday reality is not perfect like those seen in movies or TV shows. We may miss those family traditions that have fallen by the wayside due to changes in family situations or simply the passing of time. At this time of year I am thankful that three of my favorite Baltimore holiday traditions live on […]
