One of the outcomes I’d like from writing Pigtown*Design is to inform people about Baltimore and all that it has to offer. I worry that perceptions of Baltimore are derived from either John Water’s movies, especially some of the early ones, and the HBO series, The Wire. Don’t get me wrong, there are parts of Baltimore that do reflect those two realities, but neither one of them is my reality.In each issue, Elle Decor Goes To… an American city. In the March 2010 issue they visit Baltimore. I was honoured to be included as one of the people they interviewed about the city, and when the March issue hits the stands in a few weeks, you’ll be able to see what Elizabeth Evitts Dickinson, an architecture and design writer, Deborah Buck, the owner of Buck House, a Manhattan art and antiques gallery, and I say about about the city we’ve all called home.
Thank you to Jill Gerston, the article’s author, for interviewing me and including me in the article!
