Featuring Recent Thanatological Photography of
Thomas Izaguirre & Susurrus Din
The Mid-Atlantic region boasts the most spectacular variety of funerary and memorial art within a specific region in this country. Much of it is located within Baltimore and nearby areas on the Eastern Shore. My colleague Ryan Coffman (aka Sussurus Din) and I share a mutual love of this art, which is both poignant and impermanent, as much a public museum of the architecture of remembrance as place of repose for those who have passed away. We look forward to sharing our discoveries with you and promoting greater awareness of the public treasure these places represent. Sadly, some of these monuments have fallen victim to the elements or to desecration by thieves and vandals, but our work presents some of these before misfortune fell upon them. We look forward to your attendance and thank you for your interest!

Nice turnout for this event. We have not had a Friday opening in 3+ years but this was a pleasant surprise considering Artscape was going on.
Thanks to Ryan Coffman and Thomas Izagguire for sharing their works. Thanks to all that dropped by for the reception…
