Taking Space Exhibition

Your voice is valid, and we need it in this world. Taking Space is an exhibition that celebrates Latino artists based in Baltimore expressing their love of their cultures and elevating the conversation of their cultures. Each artist has a unique perspective of the Latino community, or Latinidad, and their individual stories of hope, happiness, and history. The artists come from different backgrounds and experiences. Each artist will showcase painting, sculpture, and other mediums to dig deeper into the cultural diversity of Hispanic Heritage Month.

CANCELED – CCBVF: James Taylor–Why We’re Here: An Overview of Variety’s Near-Past Origins

If you think “the good old days” of the “business of show” was the conclusion of the last century, oh, nay nay. Sideshow historian and museum creator James Taylor takes you on the wild ride that – in the “modern era” of the last several hundred years – is the broad picture of the industry, from circus to world’s fairs to dime museums to wild west shows to burlesque and beyond.
