DC Area Artists: Turn a Glass of Water into Something Beautiful

The lack of clean drinking water is the second largest worldwide killer of children under five. To address this crisis, UNICEF launched the Tap Project-a nationwide campaign to bring clean water to children around the world. During World Water Week (March 22 - March 28, 2009) participating DC area restaurants will encourage patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free. Every dollar raised provides a child with clean drinking water for 40 days.

Tap DC is asking local artists of all levels and mediums to participate in a large-scale public art project to promote World Water Week in our city. We're calling for paintings, portraits, photography, sculpture, poetry, music and other works of art that portray a glass of water-something most of us take for granted-as something beautiful. Selected works will be displayed in print, outdoor and television advertising; in a gallery exhibition; and online at TapDC.org. Click here for a template PDF that we hope you will use as your canvas, along with background information PDF and instructions for art submissions.

To have your work considered for advertising, submissions must be received no later than February 6, 2009. To be considered for the Web site and/or community exhibition, submissions must be received no later than February 20, 2009. Artwork should be mailed to the address below. For information about submitting your work electronically, please email info@tapdc.org.

BALTIMORE INFILL SURVEY

Sections of Baltimore City (ie vacant lots and buildings) represent a huge and flexible resource for new and innovative reanimation. The Baltimore Infill Survey is a Flickr-based site that has been set up as a forum to discuss how this resource may be used. You are invited to participate in this discussion. Just download the image at http://www.flickr.com/photos/baltimoreinfillsurvey/ and alter it with a possible vision for how these spaces can be used again. Any and all ideas from the very practical to the purely hypothetical are encouraged.

The photograph is of a middle of the block site (no longer existent as pictured) including occupied and vacant homes and vacant lots. The space between the buildings is approximately 85 feet (6 house widths). After you have modified your image just send it with any accompanying text to gkachadourian@promotionandarts.com. Your image and the accompanying text will be posted.

This is an ad hoc project that is being coordinated under the auspices of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and the Baltimore Design Conversation.

In addition to the countless plans of the past, a plethora of plans has been created by/for Baltimore recently, including the Charles North Vision Plan, the Pratt Street Concept Development Plan, the Middle Branch Master Plan, the Sustainability Plan, the Bicycle Master Plan, One Park, etc.

BALTIMORE DESIGN CONVERSATIONS #5: What's Your Plan?

What happens to these plans after they've been created? Why were they created in the first place? How can we improve the process of engaging everyone in the planning process? Do you have your own master plan ideas that you'd like to share?

Come to the next installment of the Baltimore Design Conversations on Wednesday February 4th to discuss these topics and more. Several conversation-starters have been confirmed:

  • Eric Gordon (www.hub2.org)
  • George Kleb (Operation Reachout Southwest's SNAP)
  • Sarah Zaleski (Baltimore's Sustainability Plan)
  • Steve Ziger (One Park)

Additionally, an A/V system will be available for short impromptu presentations; however, if you know that you would like to present, please contact ben.stone@gmail.com before the 4th.

Wednesday, February 4 6:30pm – 8:30pm at the Windup Space / 12 W North Ave @ Charles St
