On Friday May 15, WTMD will host “Thaw,” a site-specific exhibit of photos from Cuba and the polar regions taken by Janet Jeffers.
Images of remote, surreal polar landscapes contrast with the rich, decaying man-made Cuban environment. Both areas have been in the news recently, for different kinds of thawing — one from global warming; the other from a warming of diplomatic relations. The exhibit features about 50 photos, some printed on fabric and adhesive material.
“Thaw” opens with a free reception 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday May 15 at WTMD, 1 Olympic Place in Towson, featuring Baltimore rockers Western Star. The exhibit will run through June 30.
