THIS FRIDAY join us for an insightful jumpstart to you day. Make it your office meet-up. Get that morning motivation from this month’s @creativemorning talk! It’s all about #failure and stories from awesome local creatives about how they’ve dealt with it. Watch their discussion recorded by @shinecreativetv and participate in the post-talk Q&A. All this with a cup of joe and treats from @doobyscoffee, @thewaltersartmuseum. Did we mention it’s all FREE? But you have to RSVP, so do it now because seats are limited! Strangers With Style is a proud sponsor of this event. #baltimore #thingstodo #cmbal #failcocktail #talk #share (at Walters Art Museum)

Baltimore’s most distinctive bus stop was unveiled late last month on the side of the Creative Alliance in Highlandtown. The trio of giant letters — which resemble a set piece from ”Sesame Street” — has become a favorite spot for residents to lounge or pose for photos.
"It’s hit-you-over-the-head simple, but a really elegant idea," said Bill Gilmore, executive director of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts, an organizer of the project, which brought European artists to a transit stop in each of the city’s three arts districts. The initiative was funded with a $130,000 grant from the European Union National Institutes for Culture and $200,000 from ArtPlace America, Gilmore said.

Art everywhere!
