BALTIMORE MD (July 23rd 2008) – On Monday, July 21st between the hours of 12am and 7am, a Baltimore City forklift razed “The Pants Skate Ramp”, one of the Artscape sculptural pieces, which was a part of the “Outdoor Lounge”, a collection of experimental public furnishings installed throughout the grassy areas on Mt. Royal Avenue.
The Pants Skate Ramp was set to stay at its Mt. Royal location for a year as part of a winning design chosen to be built for Artscape by curator Michael Benevento of the Current Gallery. The Pants Skate Ramp selected out of a handful of projects to be erected for this year's Artscape the ramp was a created by Jordan Bernier and Steve Santillan, and was built by a team of six artists, including Alex Ebstein, John Bohl, Sara Seidman, and Elie Sollins.
The City has claimed that the removal of the ramp was accidental but the arts community, skateboarding community and especially the artists who built the ramp are upset about the destruction of their piece.
“I'm confident that the partial destruction was an accident, and while that doesn't fix the problem, the challenge of putting the pants back together has generated a huge amount of support from the community.” - Jordan Bernier
Regardless of whether this was an unfortunate accident or a City grudge against skateboarding enthusiasts in
The Skatepark of Baltimore a local non-profit organization whose mission is to facilitate the construction of a public, concrete, destination skatepark in

Infinity's Kitchen is a graphic literary journal seeking visual and performance artists to feature in our publication, online and in print. We're an arts and letters publication with a focus on the experimental and the avant-garde. To give you an idea of what we're looking for, our influences include: Dada publications, Futurism, Early Modernist journals, UbuWeb … and the avant-garde in general. Each issue, we'd like to devote a feature article to one artist's work, but we're also looking for news about shows and performances, interviews with artists, etc. If you are interested in experimental print design, we would love to discuss a collaboration.
If your work is published, you'll be paid in the form of contributor's copies, and of course the rights to your work would remain your own.

Penned, an open exhibition for penned art made by local and regional artists opened in conjunction with Artscape at MICA. Hung salon-style, the show is an interesting, though maybe a little congested, mix of styles, sizes and subject matter.
Along with each drawing, the artists were asked to submit photos of the pens they used to complete their work. The photos are displayed with the artists' names per each section of the exhibition.
