The nonprofit is packing up and moving around the corner to Chesapeake Avenue.
Towson Arts Collective is on the move.

I often feel that even though I haven't had quite as much one on one time with the Big Apple as some, it all seems very familiar to me. My guess is that it's the same for almost anyone, seeing as countless movies, television shows, and books take place there. A consumer of even just one of these media outlets would be hard pressed not to feel somewhat of an intimacy with good old NYC. One feature of The City, along with others like it, is its arts scene. We all have images of Broadway, the thespian artery teaming with performers and performances alike. Or what about Greenwich Village, the …
