Losing Winter Exhibition Opening
Summertime in Maryland means scorching heat and high humidity. What better way to cool off than to experience winter in July by visiting the Maryland Center for History and Culture’s newest exhibition: Losing Winter? From noon to 3 PM, meet featured artist Lynn Cazabon and MCHC Curator of Film & Photographs Joe Tropea in the gallery to learn more about the making of the exhibition. In the courtyard, watch a live ice sculpture carving and enjoy refreshing snowballs/ice cream from Kona Ice (1-2 PM only).
Museum admission is free! Go touchless by reserving a timeslot online, or simply walk-in! Reserve now.
About the exhibition:
A frozen lake, a buried street, shoveling feet of snow as it begins to fall again—these special winter experiences serve as landmarks in our life and memory. Yet with each year, we find such moments are disappearing. At the heart of this participatory exhibition and art project are Marylanders’ memories about the winter season, collected by featured artist Lynn Cazabon. These recollections intersect with individual lifetimes and places found in the film and photograph collections at MCHC and UMBC Special Collections. Memories and images intertwine, providing a window into personal loss in the face of a changing climate.
