SPARK 6: Projections at The Peale


November 10, 2023, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location: The Peale

Text says Refractions, Spark 6, with dates and other information available in the printed description

As part of the exhibition SPARK 6: Refractions, artist Phil Davis curates Projections at The Peale, an illumination of The Peale’s second-floor galleries with video projections viewed from outside. In 1816, artist and innovator Rembrandt Peale created a breathtaking sight in his museum building in Baltimore: Using gas and a “Magic Ring of Fire,” Peale created a glow inside the building that was strikingly visible from the street outside. It has been said that people would stand on Holliday Street in front of the Peale Museum just to marvel at the brightness of the light coming from its windows — an unprecedented sight in a world of candles and oil lamps.

Projections at The Peale will take place on Friday, November 10, and Friday, November 17, from 7 to 9 p.m.

The widows of a building are illuminated

Once again video and animation works by UMBC and Towson University artists will light up The Peale. Gallery hours will be extended on these evenings to 9 p.m. (with the exception of the front gallery on the second floor, which will be closed for the projections), and light refreshments served.

The 24-minute program will include short video and animation works by:

  • Corrie Francis Parks — Pandooric, UMBC animation class project
  • Erik Millikin — Dance of the Nain Rouge 1, Dance of the Nain Rouge 2, Ravens
  • Eva Grandoni
