WTMD Radio and Bmoreart present a new exhibit by Baltimore artists Andrew Liang and Zoe Friedman, with an opening reception and concert from 7PM to 10PM, Friday, March 28. “Everything On It” will be on display March 24 through April 30 at the WTMD studios, 1 Olympic Place in Towson. The opening reception features live performances by Americana duo Mountain Peaks and 11- piece avant-garde ensemble Ghost Life. Friedman will also debut video projections she created specifically for the performance.
The two artists, Liang and Freidman, will work together to create a site-specific and immersive environment for viewers, transforming the WTMD studios into a vivid, multimedia experience, with Liang’s elegant cartoon-style mural paintings and Friedman’s video projections, according to bmoreart.com
“It’s a chance to bring together experimental art and independent music — two things that Baltimore does very well,” said WTMD program director, Scott Mullins.
“It’s the first exhibit for Bmoreart, and our goal is to feature great artists in a new setting and to present them to a broad audience,” said Bmoreart founding editor, Cara Ober. “WTMD studios feature regular concerts that are always packed and this seems like a great opportunity for artwork to be experienced by a smart and cultured audience.”
WTMD has been a fixture in the Baltimore music scene for many years, providing the community with a steady stream of diverse, independent-minded music from the Baltimore area and nationally. With events like First Thursdays, Live Lunch, Baltimore Hit Parade and Baltimore Unsigned, WTMD has helped foster an appreciation for a wide range of genres and styles, while always staying deeply connected with Baltimore musicians and fans.
Bmoreart is a comprehensive publication for the contemporary art community and it’s partnership with WTMD will only help expand it’s thoughtful arts coverage, which now includes music, film and theatre.
