Overview

Join us for the official launch of the NONUMENT 01:: McKeldin Fountain app in McKeldin Square, the former home of the McKeldin Fountain, and participate in a public art project and demonstration of the value Baltimore residents place in their public spaces. The demolition of Baltimore’s McKeldin Fountain in 2016 was a loss of both a unique public space and a valued representation of bygone brutalist architecture. It’s destruction, carried out with little public input, is but one of an escalating number of examples of public spaces that have been co-opted by private interests. NONUMENT is a public art project dedicated to preservation of the memory of these spaces and their history through the power of augmented reality. Using a tablet or smart phone, the NONUMENT 01 app creates a three-dimensional projection of objects that are no longer there. On May 19th, we will gather at McKeldin Square on the site of the former McKeldin Fountain and activate the NONUMENT 01 app to remember the events that took place there, and protest it's loss and the loss of other spaces like it. Following the conclusion of the event at 4, we hope you'll continue to join us at the nearby 5th Fl MAP (Maryland Art Place) for the opening of the NONUMENT 01::McKeldin Fountain art exhibition.
