In celebration of the 200th birthday of Frederick Douglass the Baltimore Visitor Center is pleased to host an exhibit by the Baltimore National Heritage Area marking Douglass' life as a native Marylander. On display through March, the exhibit features a reproduction of an oil pastel mural created in collaboration by Baltimore City Public School- Highlandtown Elementary/Middle #215, sixth and seventh graders. The students worked in a "metamorphic" art style drawing images within an image of Frederick Douglass. The images represent how each student felt about Baltimore and Black History month. The mural placed third in the sixth annual Black History month art exhibition competition, sponsored by Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Community Affairs in partnership with the Creative Alliance.
