Most recently seen in David Simon's The Wire and made famous by John Waters films, Baltimore is reinventing itself as a creative community of artists and thinkers poised to overcome the problems faced by post-industrial cities. Birthplace of the national anthem and burial place of John Wilkes Booth, Baltimore embodies the rich and complicated tapestry of American history. Centrally located in the Mid-Atlantic region, Baltimore is easily reachable through Amtrak's Northeast Corridor network, Baltimore/Washington International Airport, and the entire length of the east coast via I-95. Host institution Maryland Institute College of Art welcomes you to the conference and to explore local landmarks and cultural attractions, such as Fort McHenry, the Baltimore Museum of Art, American Visionary Art Museum, National Aquarium, Camden Yards, National Museum of Dentistry, The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, National Pinball Museum, the grave of Edgar Allen Poe, and much more.
