The fifth of eight events of the "Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters" exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405 January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), "Wild Horses" explores love's tenacious hold through addiction's ride. In letters to and from loved ones caught up in the throes of substance use, we see resilience, fortitude and holding on regardless of the challenges—testimonials of undying love and unbreakable connection. "Wild Horses" features two singer-songwriters whose ballads pay tribute to the theme of love when confronted with such hardship: QueenEarth and Kirk Wulf. The program features participation from clients and staff of Baltimore recovery programs who contributed letters to the project: Dee's Place, Marian House, Powell Recovery Center, BCRI, and the Comprehensive Care Practice at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
The 5:30-6:30 pm reception period for this opening event is graced with jazz keyboardist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People.
