Some things can bring a city together, some things can break it apart. These things can be physical objects or public policies.

MICA’s new “Baltimore: Open City” exhibition is a interdisciplinary effort to figure out what makes people feel welcome or unwelcome in city neighborhoods. It builds on the work of author Antero Pietila (Not in My Neighborhood) and many other activists, architects, scholars, and artists.

Citizens Planning and Housing Association is a partner in this project. Today Tom talks to CPHA executive director Mel Freeman, as well as Daniel D’Oca, assistant professor of art history, theory, and criticism at MICA and co-founder of New York-based architecture firm Interboro Partners.

The exhibition begins tonight at 7 p.m. with a reception at the North Avenue Market in Baltimore’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District. Artist James Rojas leads an interactive workshop tomorrow at noon, and there are many more events through May. Information at baltimoreopencity.com.
