Go See the Yellow Boat
The Yellow Boat, which signifies the last of my series with the easels, is still on Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore. It has survived 2 Gran Prixs, a Ravens Superbowl victory, the first Orioles playoff run in how many years, and 2 Fourth of Julys. It has been tagged, (thank you Team Savage), and used as a garbage can. The Tennessee cypress has been holding up well in some extreme conditions, thank you Nathan Cox. So if your downtown for any reason stop by and take a look. It's across the street from the Convention Center, a few blocks East of Camden Yards.
While your at it, take a turn around the corner and check out the beautiful work by one of America's great sculptors, George Sugarman. It has been an honor of untold magnitude to have my sculpture sit so close to the work of this man.
...And if you still have time take another turn and go west on Lombard Street up to the Bromo Tower, just as you pass it make a quick right on Eutaw and wedged just between the Tower and the Fire station is an expressionistic gem by Roger Majorowicz, the bronze "Fire Chariot" is somewhat hidden, but should not be missed. Majorowicz was head of the sculpture department at MICA back in the 70's and 80's. Apparently the piece is missing some of it's original elements and is behind a fence but it still holds it's own. This piece and the Sugarman were both part of the 1% for art program, which has been responsible for a lot of great works.
