What does it mean to have an inclusive and open city? Students in MICA’s Exhibition Development Seminar wrestled with that question this past semester to create Baltimore: Open City, an exhibit of art that explores how we interact with our city, and how we can cultivate a sense of belonging among all residents of Baltimore. Today on the show we’ll discuss the art of Open City as well as the exciting new Urbanite Project: Open City Competition, which offers $10,000 for an innovative solution to a problem that has long plagued Baltimore and divided its communities - the construction of The Red Line. We’re joined by: Daniel D’Oca - Assistant Professor of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at MICA, Design Critic at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and principal and co-founder of Interboro Partners, a New York–based architecture, planning, and research firm. He headed up the Open City seminar at MICA. Carey Chiaia - MICA graduating senior and Open City co-curator Greg Hanscom - Editor in Chief of Urbanite Magazine
