Today, 2001 OSI-Baltimore Community Fellow Marshall Clarke’s organization Access Art holds the Final Spring Exhibition of its Elementary and Middle/High School programs from 5 to 7pm at Morrell Park. Additional information here.
In 2001, Clarke used his fellowship to establish Youthlight Baltimore in partnership with the American Friends Service Committee. The program provides cameras and instruction to to youth in communities around Baltimore so that they may explore their creativity and act as commentators and activists in their neighborhood through the creation of photographic images. The photographs are then displayed and sold in numerous exhibits across Baltimore City.
