Only When It's Dark Enough Can You See The Stars, a project with New York-based artist Abigail DeVille presented by The Contemporary at the former Peale Museum located at 225 N. Holiday Street.

"As a compliment to the exhibition Imagining Home, Baltimore-based artist Marian April Glebes, in collaboration with the non-profit building materials reuse facility The Loading Dock, presented a project on the material nature of home. The collaboration explored what our homes are made from and what this can tell us about our shared history and sense of place. The project consisted of installations at the BMA as well as The Loading Dock, accompanied by a year-long series of public programs."

Marian April Glebes, in collaboration with Josh Copus, launched the Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory. This project is an extension of Glebes' year-long project, in partnership with The Loading Dock, at the Baltimore Museum of Art's Patricia and Mark Joseph Education Center.
