Time: 11am-3pm
 
The Bromo History Museum expands to include “All Things Emerson,” a permanent display of historical artifacts and objects from Captain Isaac Edward Emerson, inventor of the headache remedy Bromo-Seltzer and builder of the Bromo Seltzer Tower. Located on the 15th floor, “All Things Emerson” will move into a brand new space alongside the Maryland Glass Room. 
 
The expansion highlights Emerson’s business endeavors in Baltimore including the Emersonian Apartment Building, the Emerson Hotel, his country home Brooklandwood and other personal assets. Prominent items in the collection are a large, leather-bound photograph album of past U.S. presidents signed by the 28th president Woodrow Wilson, postcard correspondences from Mr. Joseph Hinds, the President of the Emerson Drug Co. and Isaac Emerson’s key to his family mausoleum in Greenmount Cemetery on North Avenue.

Lateral Distance

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 3, 2018, 5-7pm

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower presents “Lateral Distance,” an exhibition by artist Amy Wetsch, on view Saturdays from October 27, 2018 through April 20, 2019 from 11am to 4pm.

Lateral Distance is an exhibition of works by Amy Wetsch, a MFA candidate at MICA’s Mount Royal School of Art, created in response to her recent experience working with Dr. Sarah Hörst, a Planetary Scientist at Johns Hopkins University. The focus of their research is Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, and it’s physical characteristics and processes that resemble those of our home planet, Earth. Although scientists know much about Titan, the moon is difficult to observe because of the dense atmospheric haze, which encapsulates Titan’s intriguing surface. If we were able to further explore this moon, what would we discover? While interpreting the extreme science of planetary exploration, Wetsch has created a large-scale installation, sculptural objects and drawings that aim to capture her imagined essence of Titan, as well as the wonder and grandeur of our solar system.
