B&CSC chosen as Fall 2013 class project at Maryland Institute College of Art!

Posted by admin on October 15, 2013 in B&CSC - Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company, Uncategorized |

Professor John Wilson, Maryland Institute College of Art in  Baltimore, selected the B&CSC for his Fall 2013 design class project titled Industrial Maritime & Commerce Center Project: Interpreting the Lifeways of Chesapeake Bay.  Unfortunately, this will mark the ‘retirement’  of his career as a professor.

B&CSC arranged for his class to meet aboard the Nuclear Ship SAVANNAH for a tour and to discuss the project on September 26, 2013.  B&CSC selected two sites for the class to explore generating a development plan for our all-volunteer non-profit that forwards its mission to preserve, interpret and support the industrial maritime heritage of the Chesapeake Bay Region.

The two sites are along the industrial waterfront BCSC Logo 9-2013 new completearea and are ideal in supporting facilities to maintain and repair historic vessels as well as interpretation of the folk- and lifeways of the Bay.  Students will develop plans for a maritime heritage complex that also serves Baltimore’s cultural heritage efforts.

The class will present their presentations at a special session with the B&CSC on December 19, 2013.

Working here at the Academy with a million and a half tourists a year, the more consolidated a facility the better. Tourists like to be able to get to a place and see as much as they can in one spot.

As a “tourist site,” [these offer] a lot of amenities, i.e. close to inner harbor, and other public facilities [and] would give the students a chance to research sail to steam.
