The Loading Dock, Inc.

Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory June 2016
Marian April Glebes, in collaboration with Josh Copus, launched the Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory. This project was 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.
The Baltimore Mobile Community Brick Factory made hand-processed bricks, using local Maryland clay and historic methods. Participants and visitors were invited to personalize and inscribe their stories in the handmade bricks at several sites, including at the BMA and The Loading Dock. The bricks made during this project will become part of roving public art installations over the course of the next year.

The Loading Dock & The Contemporary Museum
The Contemporary is a nomadic, non-collecting art museum in Baltimore, Maryland. Their mission expands the idea of a museum as an incubator that commissions site-specific and subject-oriented projects. They engage diverse audiences and advance contemporary art through projects and educational programming.
The Contemporary's work is inspired by three guiding principles: artists matter, collaboration is key, and audience is everywhere.
