(Dec. 1-March 11) Throw in the towel
Dozens of artists were asked to throw in the towel for an art exhibit opening tomorrow at the Maryland Institute College of Art’s Meyerhoff Gallery in Baltimore. The Common Object features more than 60 paintings incorporating a very ordinary dishtowel. The purpose of the exercise was to give the mundane its beautiful due.
