BALTIMORE IN MINIATURE @ THE CREATIVE ALLIANCE

John Krieder: Baltimore Landmarks

12-2 John KriederWHEN: Opens Friday, December 2, 5:30-7:30 PM
WHERE:
Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore

John Krieder’s lovingly built, one-of-a-kind depictions of famous and
not-so-famous buildings around Baltimore pop just off the surface—
somewhere between relief sculptures, dioramas and HO scale train
models.

You’ll likely recognize Jimmy’s Restaurant in Fells Point, shops like Killer Trash and our neighbors at Matthew’s Pizza, but maybe not the strip clubs, bail bondsmen and simple rowhomes he fashions with the same care, for an affectionate but clear-eyed tour of Charm City.

Krieder's an old friend of John Waters alums Mink Stole, Pat Moran and Bob Adams; who knows who you'll see at the opening!
