The Remington Project is an installation commissioned by the Baltimore Museum of Art featuring the portraits of 11 individuals from the Remington neighborhood of Baltimore. Tucked away between I-83, Hampden and the 26th street freight tracks, Remington sits quietly right in the shadow of the museum. These featured residents and their subsequent paintings provide an incomplete picture of a small enclave that is both charming and dark. These personal accounts provide insight into racial segregation, a declining housing stock, integration through section 8, survival in spite of the war on drugs, the lives of legacy residents and an influx of a young professionals. This is by no means an exhaustive portrayal of Remington but is instead the fruit of two months of interaction an array of people in the area.
