The third iteration of the Commons Collaboration kicks off with an exciting project from Baltimore-based artist Phaan Howng in collaboration with Blue Water Baltimore. For this project, Howng creates an immersive environment with intense, unnatural colors inspired by toxic waste. Through her partnership with Blue Water Baltimore, Howng will highlight local environmental issues and create a space and suite of programs to raise awareness about Baltimore's waterways.
