Axis Alley Install This Weekend

Book Bombs has been busy cutting denim paper for our Axis Alley installation this weekend.

Artist Sarah Doherty has coordinated with the Baltimore Housing Authority and the Mayors City Council to utilize vacant properties in the Old Goucher neighborhood of Baltimore for site specific artworks. From the Axis Alley site: “Axis Alley seeks through creative engagement to utilize the backyards of vacant properties and vacant lots as a canvas for creative works that transform, activate and revitalize the overlooked, under-attended areas of Baltimore’s back alleys."

Book Bombs will be wheatpasting handmade denim paper cut into the shapes of endangered native plant species at the rear of 2212 N. Calvert:

The opening celebration for this and other installations at the rear of the 20xx-22xx blocks of N. Calvert St. will be on May 23, with a rain date of May 22, from 3pm to 6pm. (Check our blog, or the Axis Alley site, for updates.)

And look for some installation shots cropping up here next week!
