A “living drawing” that launched at EMP Collective on January 31, 2015, RFP celebrated the ideal of an open city that actively welcomes and functions on behalf of all its residents. 

Over the course of its life, the doors of EMP opened to visitors interested in witnessing and collaborating with resident artist Amanda Burnham in the development of a massive artwork, inspired by the physical infrastructure and energy of Baltimore – present and future.

Kicking off with an opening celebration at 7pm on January 31, 2015, RFP was open to the public Monday – Friday, 11-5pm, for a family day on Saturday, February 28, 12-4, and concluded with a closing party on February 28, 2015 at 7pm.

Photographic documentation highlighting visitor contributions to RFP is currently being developed as a book; stay tuned!
