ArtWard Bound

Art and creativity abound at the ArtWard Bound event Saturday at the Walters Art Museum. The program travels from "Palaces to Pagodas," allowing visitors to explore the wondrous temples and shrines of France, Italy, India and Japan in the museum's collection. Visitors can peruse the works with the guidance of ArtPack booklets and then stop by craft tables at the Renaissance Sculpture Court and create palaces of their own.

Saturday, 1 p.m.-4 p.m. at the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St. Free with museum admission of $5; $3 seniors and ages 18-25; $1 ages 6-17; free for ages under 6. Call 410-547-9000, Ext. 300.

Model-train display

Train enthusiasts can see one of the largest model-train displays on the East Coast Sunday at the Baltimore Society of Model Engineers. Two layouts, each 12 feet wide by 65 feet long, make up the display. Operating HO and O scale trains and trolleys travel the tracks. The HO scale layout features two railroad systems - a Class I double track mainline operation and a narrow gauge. The O scale layout features two railroad systems, as well - a single track mainline and an electrified inter-urban line. In addition to the layouts, visitors can also browse displays focusing on railroad history and lore.

The show takes place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. this Sunday, Jan. 14, 21 and 28 at the Baltimore Society of Model Engineers, 225 W. Saratoga St., third floor. Accessible by stairs only. $2-$3. Call 410-837-2763 or access www.modelengineers.com on the Web.
