On Friday, May 11, the newly-relaunched BMA Outpost will co-host “100 Plus,” an event with the Cherry Hill Town Center to celebrate the community which has gone more than 100 days without a shooting. The event will recognize the many groups and individuals who have contributed to the reduction of violence in the neighborhood.
The event will also feature artwork created by Cherry Hill residents, including the unveiling of a large-scale narrative painting that depicts the work of current OSI Fellow, Eric Jackson, who, through his project, Building Black Land and Food Sovereignty Practice, is developing a community-controlled cooperative food venture in Cherry Hill.
Dave Eassa, a 2015 OSI Community Fellow, is now the Manager of Community Engagement at the Baltimore Museum of Art. For his fellowship, Eassa developed Free Space, a program that brought drawing, painting, screen printing, poetry, and other forms of creative expression into the Maryland Correctional Institute in Jessup.
