Negotiating Baltimore's Howard Street is no easy feat these days because of light-rail construction. But if you are in the vicinity, take a look at the old Greyhound bus terminal. The 1940s building is being transformed into a handsome headquarters complex for the Baltimore Regional Council of Governments.
There is another reason to see it as well. An exhibit of contemporary Soviet photography is on view until June 21 in what used to be the terminal's service shed. That site "provides an appropriate parallel to the space being used by Soviet artists at work today," according to the exhibit's sponsors.
The Regional Council of Governments will be a welcome addition to downtown Baltimore. As for the fledgling Museum for Contemporary Arts, may it thrive by encouraging exhibits that otherwise would not be shown in the area.
