Saturday: Doors Open Baltimore

Oct. 22

There's much to explore in this city of ours, but there's plenty that either can't be seen or examined up close throughout the year for various reasons. As the name suggests, Doors Open Baltimore allows a rare look into many of these underappreciated spaces—there are 61 in all this year. So you can, say, tour 10 Light Street, the towering art deco skyscraper that's recently been converted into apartments, without having to sign a lease there. Or you could poke around the Clifton Mansion, the former summer house of Johns Hopkins that now serves as the headquarters for Civic Works. Or there's the chance to see some of the artwork on display at the Schuler School of Fine Arts. You get the idea. Be sure to choose wisely, because there's so much to see and only so little time. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., various locations, doorsopenbaltimore.org, free. (Brandon Weigel)
