Jack Whitten’s abstract mosaic “9.11.01” pays homage to the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Whitten saw the twin towers fall from his home and studio in Queens and, over the course of five years, made this work as a tribute.

Making Baltimore greener one community at a time. We're on board!

Want to find a way to fund a community greening project in your neighborhood?

Then come and hear about state grants for greening and other beautification projects at the last Reclaiming Vacant Lots meeting on Monday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. at Kirby Lane Park, 1822 W Saratoga.

Our speaker, Trey Miller of Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development will be talking about MDHCD's upcoming grants, including Community Legacy, BRNI and others that will be posted next week and due in October. You will get the scoop on the details of these grants at the meeting.

Many neighborhood groups throughout Baltimore (such as Boyd-Booth, Druid Heights, Franklin Square and Park Heights) have successfully applied for these grant funds and created a beautiful green space for their community.

Speaking of a beautiful neighborhood green space, you will also get a chance to see the awe-inspiring Kirby Lane Park created by Donald Quarles and the Franklin Square Community with help from the state of Maryland, Bon Secours Community Works, Play4All, and Parks and People.

We're incredibly proud of Nate Fields, our VP of Community Outreach. He's a tireless advocate for people struggling with housing security and was just named a new The Journey Home board member of Baltimore City's Continuum of Care, a collaborative body that promotes community-wide efforts to prevent and end homelessness in Baltimore City.

Nate's work is inspired by this quote from Marian Wright Edelman: "Homeless shelters, child hunger, and child suffering have become normalized in the richest nation on earth. It's time to reset our moral compass and redefine how we measure success."

Just because we can't attend the first few Baltimore Ravens games at M&T Bank Stadium this season doesn't mean we can't all have presence there! Purchase a cutout of yourself, or your favorite #Ravens fan, and the team will place them in the end zones of the lower seating bowl. Best of all, proceeds benefit the Ravens Foundation and its support of local #COVID-19 relief efforts.

Cutouts cost $55 (general public) and $45 (PSL Owners). Order yours by September 7 to have it there for the opening game on September 13. You can purchase the cutouts here: https://bddy.me/3beSjAr

Time for an #EveryStoryCounts community highlight! 📣

Torbin Green started out as a classroom volunteer at the St. Francis Neighborhood Center in Baltimore's Reservoir Hill neighborhood six years ago. Today, he is the center's Operations & Program Director. When COVID-19 hit Baltimore in March, he came up with a plan to make sure that none of the children in the center's after-school program lacked the ability to learn. Due to their close relationships with the families they serve, staff quickly realized that even more support was needed to weather the crisis. Now, Torbin and his team are distributing hundreds of free boxes of produce each week, and he has become an advocate for fresh food access in West Baltimore.

Baltimore portraitist Jerrell Gibbs exhibits his work all over the nation. His paintings illustrate his life growing up as a Black man in Baltimore. Jerrell delves into the importance of collecting Baltimore experiences throughout history and how to create context for the Black experience beyond trauma in art.

Jerrell Gibbs retraces family memories, examining the origin of his own life by representing intimate and instantly joyous moments. While affirming the multilayered experience of the African-American diaspora, Gibbs plunges the viewer into an immersive experience, the realm of his childhood. Growing up in Baltimore influenced his perspective of socio-economics, body politics, race, economic disparities, and their influence on one another.

Thursday programs are sponsored by BGE.
