Art on the Waterfront brings outdoor installations and sculptural works to the Middle Branch section of Gwynns Falls Trail. The public art exhibition features the works of Baltimore-based artists Becky Borlan, Graham Coreil-Allen, Ashley Kidner and Matthias Neumann. An opening reception takes place on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 from 4:30pm to 9:30pm at Middle Branch Park at 3301 Waterview Avenue. Festivities include outdoor sculpture and environmental art, music by DJ GrownMan and soul singer Jonathan Gilmore, along with a view of the nearby Ports America Chesapeake Fourth of July Celebration fireworks show, starting at 9:30pm.

Art on the Waterfront is a temporary sculpture exhibition on view Wednesday, July 4, 2018 through Friday, September 28, 2018. The exhibition through Middle Branch Park adds to arts and cultural programming near the trail. The area’s distinctive surroundings are highlighted through creative installations. Its first installment features Becky Borlan’s Prisms, which pays homage to Baltimore City’s harbor and history of sailing; Graham Coreil-Allen’s Baltimore Banner Vista, which highlights the city’s past and future transportation innovations; Ashley Kidner’s Pollinator Hexagon, which draws attention to the importance of pollinator plants; and Matthias Neumann’s Basics #24, which explores an abstracted notion of form, space and utility in public sculpture.

Art on the Waterfront is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and supported by the Baltimore City Department of Recreation & Parks, South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, the City of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Casino Local Development Council. This public art exhibition is held in partnership with the SoBo Summer Music Series, featuring free contemporary jazz and R&B concerts at locations throughout South Baltimore.
