Traditions: The Baltimore Salt Box

The Salt Box: an unusual thing in an unusual city. What are they, who makes them, and why do some of them have artwork?

We decided to find out by talking to Robert "Saltbox Bob" Atkinson, writer of the Saltbox Concern Volume 1, Carpenter Godfrey Brown and Carpenter II Charles "Pete" Peterson of the Baltimore Department of Transportation, and Juliet Ames, a local artist who decided to make the Salt Box on her street a little more unusual.

This episode of Traditions was filmed by Greg Bowen and Julia Golonka, and edited by Julia Golonka.

Downtown Partnership of Baltimore

In these strange times it was incredibly powerful to see first hand how much hard work and effort the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore community is putting into providing, responding, maintaining, healing, and above all – hoping. Thanks for letting us share the experience.

Normally, Downtown Baltimore is a lot of things to a lot of people. But these are not normal times. These days, Downtown Baltimore is providing, responding, maintaining, healing, and hoping.

To everyone staying home, and those who are serving their neighbors, thank you.

We owe a special thank you to the University of Maryland, Baltimore for providing us with footage from restricted areas that show the many things their students and employees are doing, often behind the scenes, to help Baltimore during this crisis.

Traditions: Baltimore Graffiti

Mike Sachse started photographing graffiti as a way to capture the creativity and variety of a changing art form. This practice led to a book, Baltimore Graffiti: The Definitive Charm City Style Collection, and a broad perspective on what makes Baltimore's graffiti unique. This episode follows the author around the city to see some of the hidden spaces where artists work

We feel super lucky when we get to capture events like the Chocolate Affair by Health Care for the Homeless. We love their mission and were honored to be asked to photograph this event for the second year in a row.

Chocolate Affair 2020 was filled to the brim with sweet and savory treats, all with an equally delicious purpose: every chocolate-inspired dish & dollar donated helps people regain health, family and the safety of home. Thanks to the money raised at this event, over 1,000 individuals across Baltimore will gain access to transformative care. 👏

Thanks for letting us hang out Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts!

Traditions: Rawlings Conservatory

The Rawlings Conservatory & Botanical Gardens of Baltimore was completed in 1888 and is a monument to exploration and preservation. Visiting a conservatory can quite literally be like a trip around the world, and for Director Ann Green, there is no greater joy than providing city residents an opportunity to get close to nature and inspire others to preserve natural spaces.

This latest episode of Traditions was directed and edited by Julia Golonka.

The Listening Lab is a music-education program from Baltimore Chamber Orchestra that teaches students concentration, awareness, and intentional listening-skills techniques through music. We interviewed Assistant Conductor Rebecca Smithorn over the course of her week-long residencies at two Baltimore schools this summer, and learned how to open our hearts and our selves to music.

Traditions: Fluid Movement

"There's magic in public performance art. It helps us to share this one ephemeral moment, this little snippet in time where we're all together in the same place, seeing something magic that will never be repeated."

For this episode of Traditions we talked to Valarie Perez-Schere, President and Artistic Director of Fluid Movement, a wonderfully weird performance group that uses a swimming pool as their stage and upholds "Communitas, Choreographitas, Glitterus Maximus."

Traditions: American Visionary Art Museum

"Most museums, urban museums, are like fortresses. They say 'stay out, we have valuable things inside.' We wanted to be an extension of Federal Hill Park, right behind us, and be more like a wonderland."

In 1984 Rebecca Alban Hoffberger had the idea for a new museum and education center that would emphasize intuitive creative invention, and five years later the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) was born.

For this episode of Traditions we spoke with Rebecca Hoffberger, Founder and Director of the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.
