"To celebrate the completion of the 36’ mosaic mural completed in partnership with Jubilee Arts and over 100 community members, Baltimore Clayworks partnered with photographer James Singewald to produce this limited edition print of the project. Supported by Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, the PNC Transformative Art Prize and additional individual donors made this beautiful addition to Pennsylvania Avenue possible. Purchases of the print provide funding that will support continued programming at Jubilee Arts for youth, senior adults and families."
James Singewald was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He moved to Philadelphia in 1998 to attend the University of the Arts where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography. James spent ten years in Philadelphia photographing neighborhoods and industrial spaces prior to the rapid redevelopment and gentrification that has changed many parts of the city in the past ten years or so. Most of what he photographed during that time has been rehabbed, redeveloped, or does not exist anymore. In 2008, he moved to Baltimore where he received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photographic and Electronic Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
When James is not working on personal projects, he works full time at the Maryland Historical Society in the Imaging Services Department where he is responsible for the photography and digitization of items in the collections as well as fulfilling patron requests for rights and reproductions. He also does freelance photography work. James not only exhibits his photography in galleries, but he also sells his work at various art fairs and street festivals in cities including Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York.
