Abandon Ship Opens @ Current

Abandon Ship, the last exhibition at the 30 South Calvert location, is an ongoing installation and simultaneous, creative destruction of the building before its official tear-down. Artists are invited to continue to contribute to the exhibition up until the day before demolition, as long as they are willing to let their pieces get destroyed with the building. Both awesome and a little sad, highlight from the exhibition include Gary Kachadourian's wheatpasted backyard and dumpster, A row boat by Audrey Collins Petrich, a collaborative papier mache installation that explodes through the ceiling, and the slick, cut-out wall text. Be sure to check it out before its gone!
