Bmore Than the Story
Bmore than the Story was a collaboration between visual and performing arts students from Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts, a Baltimore City Public School, graphic design students from the University of Maryland, College Park, Senior Graphic Design Cohort, and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore, MD.
Each component in the exhibit is designed to showcase the experiences of AFSIVA students living in Baltimore before, during, and after the uprising. Some noteable features of the exhibit included:
Birds of Prey: vultures augmented with surveillance cameras, intended to convey the constant, oppressive surveillance they face in their daily lives.
Wall of Names: Freddie Gray was one of thousands, so we compiled a list of known victims of police brutality and allows visitors to add names.
Blacklights: students annotated headlines from various news sources to add a counter narrative to mainstream media descriptions of the uprising.
More information about the exhibit, the creators and our process is available on the Bmore than the Story official website.
