Frederick, Maryland

Shot for the Maryland State Arts Council.

The Weinberg Center for the Arts. Absolute Art Deco gorgeousity built in the 1920s, revitalized in the 1970s.

"In 1975, Dan and Alyce Weinberg and others began advocating the idea of turning the Tivoli into a cultural arts center that could be a driving force in the revitalization of downtown Frederick. In August, 1976, the theater held a 50th anniversary celebration during which initial conversations were held about the Tivoli's future. But only two months later, the storm-driven waters of Carroll Creek flooded the theatre and much of downtown Frederick. The Tivoli was nearly destroyed as water peaked three feet above stage level, submerging the seats and floating the Wurlitzer organ onto the stage. Water filled the theater, along with mud, slime and muck."

Ended the night with a delicious dinner at Volt.
