Photos and Stories Reveal Early Days of City's
Efforts to Remake Itself
Through the work of the father-daughter team of Marion and Mame Warren, a new exhibit opens a door to the beginning of Baltimore's efforts to renew its downtown with the Charles Center project, a massive remaking of nine full city blocks begun in the 1950s.
Through a series of photographs taken by Marion Warren, official photographer for the project, and excerpts from oral histories collected by Mame Warren, author and historian, visitors to the new exhibit will get a detailed view of those early renewal days in Baltimore. The exhibit, entitled, "A Great Vision: Launching Baltimore's Charles Center," is free and open to the public six days a week from now through next year.
The exhibit is located at The Johns Hopkins University's Downtown Center, home to the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education, at 10 N. Charles Street. Hours for the exhibit are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays; and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
The exhibit is made possible by the support of Peter Angelos and the Greater Baltimore Committee. For information, call (410) 516-0700.
