– On Fri., Jan. 8 and Sat., Jan. 9 from 10 AM to 3 PM EST, check out
peace seeker, an installation by Katie Addada Shlon at the Arcadia-Beverly Hills Historic District. It will continue Thurs., Jan. 14 and Fri.,
Jan. 15. Get tickets at
This is hosted by The Shed. Through their latest installation,
Katie Addada Shlon asks visitors to consider how use changes what is possible.
Presenting object/instruments that have been made from second hand materials,
Shlon encourages visitors to touch the sculptures gently while listening for
harmony in the sounds made by the interactions. They explain, “Things may fall
or break with the gentlest touch, but even that will make a sound worth
listening to! People should be advised that there are sharp edges on broken
ceramics and metal strings… hopefully no one gets hurt!” Despite the fragility
and potential risk present in the works, the experience of this installation is
conducive to a meditative state.
–On Fri., Jan. 8, Mon., Jan. 11 and
Wed., Jan. 13 and continuing on different days through March 12 from 10 AM to 8
PM EST, tune in to Quilts and the Stories They Tell at the Sandy Spring Museum.
Reservations are encouraged at https://www.sandyspringmuseum.org/quilts/.
Take a close look at a quilt and you can almost hear the words of the maker,
the fabric, and the purpose of this utilitarian work of art. But while every
quilt has a backstory, the story quilt starts with a message. A story quilt may
include words, photos, non-traditional fabrics, and embellishments along with
more standard quilting techniques and materials.
47] – On Fri., Jan. 1 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM EST, come to

Justice Committee (BQPJC) outside the Homewood Friends Meetinghouse, 3107 N.
Charles St. The next scheduled vigil is on Jan. 8. From 6 to 6:30 PM

Wear your face mask. Email email@example.com or call 410-235-4438.
Quaker values call us to speak truth and to seek equality for all people. We
aim to follow Bayard Rustin’s wisdom that “we need, in every community, a group
of angelic troublemakers” and John Lewis’s call to “make good trouble.” See
"The master class has always declared
the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles. The master class has
had all to gain and nothing to lose, while the subject class has had nothing to
gain and everything to lose--especially their lives." Eugene Victor Debs
