New ‘Visit Baltimore’ Scuplture Added to the Inner Harbor

| May 24, 2021 | 0 Comments

Visit Baltimore, the marketing organization for the City of Baltimore that promotes hospitality and tourism, unveiled a new sculpture of its logo at the Inner Harbor last week. The sculpture, which is the second one unveiled by Visit Baltimore, is located at Area 10 which is a grass space in between the World Trade Center and the National Aquarium.

About the sculpture:

Inspired by Baltimore’s industrial and working-class roots, this structure references a megaphone, or a voice projecting boldly into a space. The rise and fall of the letterforms also suggest our rowhomes, architecture and street corners meeting together, all apt metaphors for a great American city on the rise.

In an email, a spokesperson for Visit Baltimore said: “As more people are getting vaccinated, we want locals and visitors alike to know the city is ready to welcome them back safely and with open arms. The sculptures are just one way we’re saying, “welcome back,” and encouraging visitors to visit Baltimore.org to plan their adventure – whether it’s a day trip or overnight getaway.”

The first sculpture was unveiled at Guinness Open Gate Brewery on May 7th during National Travel and Tourism Week.

Visit Baltimore wants visitors to take photos in front the sculptures and tag the organization on social media using the hashtag #VisitBaltimore.
