Friday: "Characters Welcome"

Aug. 5

Make Studio is one of Baltimore's most important art institutions not only because it provides arts programming to people with disabilities, but because in doing so it often generates some of the most interesting work out there—art that tells a different story and helps build a more inclusive creative community. And it's not just the watercolor-and-crayons stuff typically associated with programs for the disabled—though that's all well and good—Make Studio artists work with a variety of media and disciplines, including digital fabrication, the focus of the program's latest exhibition. Here, artists worked in collaboration with the Digital Harbor Foundation and Sondheim semi-finalist Kristin McWharter to combine traditional media and modern digital methods, including 3D printing. In addition to the exhibition, the opening includes 3D printing demos led by the Digital Harbor Foundation and family acitivities including something called "Maker Mini Golf." Opening reception 6-9 p.m. Aug. 5, exhibition on view through Aug. 30, Make Studio at Schwing Art Center, 3326 Keswick Road, (443) 627-3502,, free. (Maura Callahan)
