8/13: SEEN: 20 Years of Baltimore Music Photography Preview Reception

Thursday, August 13, 2020 | 5:30 PM

Preview Reception: Thursday, August 13 | 5:30pm

In the last two decades, Baltimore's music scene has risen from near obscurity to become one of the best in the country. 

But due to the fleeting nature of music and art in the digital world, Baltimore's contributions to the local and national music scene haven’t been documented in one place, and some of these artists and their music are in danger of being forgotten.

That's why WTMD and Maryland Art Place are partnering to present "SEEN: 20 Years of Baltimore Music Photography," a retrospective of Baltimore music through photos and other digital works curated by Joseph M. Giordano and Josh Sisk.

"SEEN" kicks off with a free reception and live concert/on-air broadcast at WTMD’s performance studio August 13 featuring dozens of Baltimore bands, DJs and solo musicians.

The lineup includes rappers DDm and Height Keech, Bmore Club DJ James Nasty, TaxLo's Cullen Stalin, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, garage rockers Thee Lexington Arrows, Caleb Stine and other stars of the Americana scene, Cara Beth Satalino of Outer Spaces and more TBA.

This new exhibit spotlights all genres and generations of Baltimore's music scene. It aims to tell the story of Baltimore’s ever-growing music scene and its many talented bands and musicians, many of which started at small clubs around Baltimore only to land on national and international platforms.

The show's formal opening reception is September 10 at Maryland Art Place, followed by satellite exhibitions of photos at various Baltimore live music clubs.

The WTMD reception starts at 5:30 p.m. Thursday Aug. 13. Sponsored in part by Boordy Vineyards and Coney Island Brewing Company.
