If you’re driving through nighttime Baltimore in the next few weeks, don’t forget to look up. Every day, from sunset to sunrise through mid-December, the iconic 100-year old Bromo Seltzer Tower’s four clock faces will be lit up with animations created by Kelley Bell ’06, MFA, who also teaches at UMBC.

From the Baltimore Sun:

“I love the idea of people interacting with my work,” Bell says.

“One of the things that’s very problematic for me with most animation is that it takes place inside a frame. You sit in a chair and look at it. My art is about finding ways to get out of that box. People can immerse themselves in the artwork, share a physical space with it.”
