Presented by the Maryland Center for History and Culture Maritime Committee
In coastal regions such as Maryland, the Chesapeake Bay provided an extensive waterway system that served as a crucial passage to freedom. Although most of the published accounts of enslaved fugitives describe the use of boats or ships as a means of escaping from slavery, until recently, the maritime dimension of the Underground Railroad has been neglected.
The Wise & Well Center for Healthy Living presents – Art as an Act of Healing, a Symposium, and an Exhibition that will examine the ways art can serve an essential function in the process of healing and wellness. Keswick believes that art plays a pivotal role in a person’s wellness journey. We see art and artmaking as a means for people to enrich, enliven and examine their lives at every stage.

As It Should Be asked artists to imagine what tomorrow brings. If artists had the power to wake in the morning and have the perfect day, have all problems in the world be solved then what would the world look like? “The artist” is often written off as someone who doesn't understand how the world works and whose ideas have no basis of reality within the current system. What is misunderstood in these moments is that the artist can simultaneously hold the world as it is and the world as it should be. The cognitive dissonance between these two worlds is the space where the artist thrives.

In a tiny brick house on Baltimore’s North Amity Street in 1833-1835 Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of the early stories that would make him the father of the modern short story, and create and define the modern genres of mystery, horror and science fiction.
His spirit and legacy live throughout Baltimore City, inspiring authors, poets, playwrights, businesses – and even our sports teams. Poe Baltimore celebrates this legacy.
