Society’s Cage, an experiential public art installation, has debuted in Baltimore and is exhibited on War Memorial Plaza, at 101 North Gay Street, through Friday, October 30, 2020, 9AM – 9PM daily.
Created by architects Dayton Schroeter and Julian Arrington in the aftermath of the murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the installation highlights the historic forces of racialized state violence in America. The design is rooted in the fundamental question: "What is the value of a Black Life in America?"
As both a powerful work of public art, and a racial and social justice teaching tool open to all, Society’s Cage debuts in Baltimore as a signature event for this year’s Free Fall Baltimore, presented by BGE and Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC), and produced by Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, with programming support from the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Baltimore).
