Tom speaks painter David Brewster and Alexandra Deutsch, the Director of Collections and Interpretation at the Maryland Historical Society, about the Society's current exhibition. Structure and Perspective: David Brewster Explores Maryland’s Social Landscape portrays Maryland's "social landscape" by juxtaposing pieces from the Society’s collection with paintings by David Brewster, who hails from Baltimore County but currently lives in Vermont. The show takes up several issues that resonate in contemporary culture like race, gender, sexuality, and the politics of immigration. 

On Wednesday November 1, at 6:30pm, Alexandra Deutsch will lead a Curator’s Tour of the exhibition. The event is free for members, $15 for non-members. 

On Saturday November 11th, at 2pm, the Historical Society will hold a Structure and Perspective community discussion to explore how Maryland’s social landscape is perceived and approached by people in different communities. This event is free.
