Seafaring art exhibit to dock in Baltimore in fall

Baltimore will be home to an art gallery on water for five days this fall.

SeaFair, an art and antiques show aboard a 228-foot mega-yacht, will dock at the Harbor East marina beginning Oct. 31.


The yacht, called Grand Luxe, will display fine art and antiques in a 12,500-square-foot space.

"Baltimore is an ideal destination for SeaFair," said David Lester, managing partner of Expoships LLLP, the Florida developer of SeaFair, in a statement.

The Walters Art Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art have cultivated an appreciation for fine art within the city, Lester said.

Seafair's inaugural tour will begin Sept. 25 in Greenwich, Conn. and will travel to 38 cities along the eastern seaboard for five days of invitation-only, dockside events. Other ports include Boston, Manhattan and Miami Beach during Art Basel.

The five-level yacht will feature art from more than 100 dealers from around the world in 28 galleries. The yacht also features a restaurant, sky deck bistro, open-air champagne and caviar lounge and international coffee bar.

I like this project

and the Struever project in Brewers Hill(next to Canton) calls for 600 market rate apartments and 135,000 sq ft of retail. Struever has the most exciting projects now in the city outside of 10 Inner Harbor and 300 East Pratt.
1. Harbor East/Point
2. State Center
3. Brewers Hill
4. Charles Village Olmsted

I'm sure its just a coincidence that Liverpool is today's banner, but isn't it ironic that Baltimore was yesterday's banner and Baltimore was known as the Liverpool of America?

Read the whole article on 300 E. Pratt in the BBJ. It wasn't very long, but hotel interest is strong and they might move from 250 rooms up to 300 rooms with retail and 300 condos. Sounds like the housing market slump slowed them but they want to have approval of final design in next 6 months and begin construction in the spring or summer of 08. Encouraging news I guess.

i personally know someone local who paid more than 7mil for a penthouse at the ritz. we've had this discussion in the past....there is a TON of money in baltimore. don't let yourself be fooled otherwise.

I haven't seen it yet, but saw a bunch of the filming. I know they spent a lot of time filming a scene with bruce willis standing on a car on the corner of Calvert and Fayette. They also filmed a lot of the helicopter scenes on the block that covers Redwood St, South St, and Lombard. There should be quite a few scenes that were done on two locations (Calvert and on South St.) I'd be surprised if you can't see the Munsey in some shots....

I know that the highest census count was the 949k in 1950. However, I believe it's entirely possible the city's population touched 1 million during the war years. The Fairfield shipyard had over 30,000 workers alone, and I think Glenn L. Martin (aircraft plant) and Sparrows Point had at least that many each. Yes I know both of those plants were actually in Baltimore County, but I'm sure lots of those workers lived in the city.

As a kid in the '50's, I remember well the barracks-like temporary housing that was still standing in the Brooklyn area (what is now Bay-Brook Park). What are now the wastelands of east and west Baltimore were densly populated then.

I think most would argue that Baltimore as too densely settled.

The city probably did hit 1 million during the 40's before starting it's decline. What's amazing is that many some city areas had not been built yet. The population boom was a consequence of WWII; many thousands of people were ordered here to work in industries that were useful to the war effort. The high population density also had a lot to do with the fact the multi-generational households were still common. My own family history includes a guy who worked at Martin company (50,000 employees) and shared one bed with 2 other guys as paying borders in 8 hour shifts in a bedroom in a small rowhouse that also had mom, pop and 4 of their own kids who shared 2 other bedrooms and a basement. Nobody lives that way anymore. Companies like Bethlehem Steel, General Motors, Western Electric, etc had similar huge numbers of employees. At that time there wasn't much in the way of suburbs so most of these people lived in the city.

I have not seen the movie yet, but in the trailer, at appears that they didn't wait for federal funding to bring down the JFX.
