In “Moonifestations of Ancestor Earth: a voyage of expansion,” a mixed media exhibit by The Dandy Vagabonds, (xander dumas and elliot moonstone), The Dandy Vagabonds have created 2- and 3-dimensional naturescapes that captivate the senses. They encourage the viewer to “picture the ocean as it churns and cascades, spits and crashes…grooving time into the cliffs of the Pacific coast” or to widen their vision to “see ancient ferns unfurling within a forest of moss and conifers.”
The Dandy Vagabonds, a Baltimore-based duo, capture moments in time and space through their whimsical, adventurous and insightful story telling. Drawing inspiration from the lineage of stones and the memory of flying, the collaborative duo uses performance art, fiber arts, the tactile and the ephemeral to weave together moments of ancestor past and future in their panoramic environments. Through their exhibit, dumas and moonstone plan to take the viewer on a journey throughout Earth element tapestries and into the Cosmos.
The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, managed by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, is open every Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Guests have an opportunity to view artwork throughout the building, including 15 floors of working artist studios and special exhibits. Visitors can also learn more about the historical building and participate in a tour of the clock room ($8).
