From March 28th to April 3rd, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was aglow for the first Light City Baltimore. People from various backgrounds crowded to see the over 40 pieces of light artwork around the city. While the works themselves were not particularly impressive, they helped create a carefree and fun atmosphere for the community. From the music, to the dancing, to the interactive exhibits, Light City Baltimore united a city, still recuperating from the unrest last April. Even in this small way, Light City accomplished its goal of “powering social change”.
