Aggregating for Aesthetics (February 18, 2017) The historic Hutzler Brothers Palace building was bustling again as art lovers filled the former lobby for the opening night reception for “The Ground,” a commisioned exhibition of work by Richmond and New York-based artist Michael Jones McKean.
Folks perused the multi-room, two-story art installation…
…all set up in the long vacant space, originally built in 1888 as the first department store in Baltimore.
