Baltimore Rising: An Exhibition at MICA
It’s been a year and a half since the unrest of April 2015 following the death of Freddie Grey, who was critically injured in police custody. The police trials are behind us, and much of the media attention. But MICA has a new exhibition that aims to ignite a conversation about the roots of Baltimore’s discontent: the social, political, and racial rifts that led to the uprising. Tony Shore, the chair of MICA’s painting department, gives us a tour of Baltimore Rising.
