Baltimore Art + Justice Project

Artists have always found ways to apply their skills to community-based projects, from the painfully obvious—the public-art murals—to the less so, such as community gardens and oral history projects. Baltimore, like many economically depressed urban areas, has a healthy history of such actions, but MICA’s Baltimore Art + Justice Project is the first organized effort—in the city and the country—to map both the artists and direct-action community-service providers who are already collaborating/want to collaborate on such projects. It’s only been collecting data for a year, but it’s creating a vital tool for constructing a sustainable infrastructure for exploring how creative laborers can apply their expertise to real-world problems—problems that often fall through the budget-cut cracks of conventional social services.
