New Space is being presented by UMBC and the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. The discussion panel is made up of leaders from Baltimore's cultural landscape. The panel is being asked, how do new spaces inspire us to think, create and engage in expected and unexpected ways?
Joining Mr. Lancisi on the panel will be David Mitchell from Arena Players, Doreen Bolger from the Baltimore Museum of Art, choreographer Liz Lerman, and Marvin Pinkert from the Jewish Museum of Maryland, among others. WYPR's Maryland Morning co-host Tom Hall will be moderating the discussion.
