For my Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit at Artomatic, I decided to include some photos that I took from the actual Occupation sites just so visitors can see my inspiration for the series. This piece is a collage of photos I took of Occupy Baltimore. Here is my label description of this piece.
Location: McKeldin Plaza in the Inner Harbor
Current Status as of May 18, 2012: Last December the local authorities have evicted Occupy Baltimore, removed their tents, and banned tents and camping in McKeldin Plaza. While Occupy Baltimore will still hold General Assemblies and other meetings and events at McKeldin Plaza, the group has changed its focus from camping outside to working on demonstrations, teach-ins, and other actions that focuses on the issues affecting the 99% who live in Baltimore.
Now through June 23 you’ll be able to see and purchase print versions of these photos at Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City, Virginia. The Occupy the Dollhouse exhibit is located on the 10th floor in room 166.
