On the Fence
Orioles and tigers and horses, oh my! The fence on Oliver Street directly across from the entrance to the Fitzgerald at UB Midtown’s parking garage blocks a construction staging area for UB’s Langsdale Library renovations. And the University of Baltimore has turned it into something beautiful: a map of the UB campus and its vicinity, illustrated by Libby VanderPloeg, that serves as a larger-than-life, colorful welcome to the neighborhood—and to some of the city’s most iconic quarters.
And we’re not the only ones who love it: The fence earned a gold in the Specialty Items/Illustrations category of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education’s District II 2016 Accolades Awards.
