Baltimore Dcenter Event

The Baltimore Dcenter has an interesting project going on, they want to see what design means to you. This would be a great opportunity to showcase some of your past projects with the Baltimore community.

Below are the details.

Hi all, Dcenter always needs you, of course, we need you to keep coming to us with new ideas for Design Convos, we need you to participate in these events and keep growing the group of people interested in design in Baltimore and beyond, and now we need you to help us celebrate your hard work and to get everyone together for a big open show and party!

In the past three years, D center Baltimore has been working hard to advocate for design awareness in the Baltimore community and beyond. With our recent expansion into the 218 Saratoga Street storefront gallery, D center @ MAP, and with our receipt of the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town Placemaking Grant for our proposal with Maryland Institute College of Art, Central Baltimore Partnership, and Station North Arts and Entertainment District, we feel now is the time to revisit the questions that inspired our big tent: “Does Baltimore need a design center? If so, what would it look like, and what can it do?”

Since the first meetings were held to parse what a design center should and could be in Baltimore, you have played a vital role in the conversation. In thanks for your past service and in encouragement your continued involvement in the future of design in the city, we invite you to participate in our next exhibition, Network (Temporary Permanent Collection). D center @ MAP would like to include a representation of what design means to you - a project you have worked on, an advertisement of your organization, a doodle on a napkin, a letter of support, or any kind of visual media or contribution that indicates your relationship to design. Please include a brief description of the work, no more than 150 words. Because D center includes, by mission and by practice, diverse incarnations of design, these specifications are intentionally vague. Simply submit a work that you feel best visualizes yourself or your discipline. We ask that your work be delivered, or please arrange for us to pick it up, before 2 November 2011 (or drop it off at the Windup Space during the Nov 1 Design Convo!). Please RSVP by 26 October 2011. You are welcome and encouraged to use this invitation to include others you feel would be interested in participating in not only the exhibition, but also the future of D center. We are thankful for all that you do for the design community, and we look forward to celebrating you and your work in Network (Temporary Permanent Collection). For questions and confirmation of your participation, please contact > > or >> .

Hope everyone can participate! We are very excited about the future and past of design in Baltimore, and would love to see you take part in this chance to continue the conversation with your work!
