FROM THE outside, the four-story building at 1401 Mount Royal Ave. in Baltimore doesn't look much different from when it housed offices of the American Automobile Association.But its interior has been altered dramatically to provide educational spaces for the Maryland Institute, College of Art, including a new library, classrooms and faculty offices.That transformation, designed by Ziger/Snead Inc., was selected to receive the Grand Design Award in the 1998 design competition sponsored by the Baltimore chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

A sweeping staircase leading to a ballroom and stage. A stone terrace overlooking a sparkling pool. Plus a billiards room, two family rooms and six fireplaces. There's living large, and then there's living grand. The 12,000-square-foot home of Dr. Donald E. Wilson and his wife, Patricia, is an excellent example of the latter. The couple live in Green Spring Valley, which is known for its estate-sized homes, but the Wilson house, which took two years to build, is significant for its features and design.

So Baltimore's newest museum shop should be a happy alternative for last-minute shoppers.

It is after hours at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The ticket window is closed. The day's visitors have gone home, and so have the volunteer tour guides.But a sort of art is being made.In a large gallery, designer Karen Nielsen is high above the floor in a cherry picker, tinkering with the lights. Curator Brenda Richardson stands below, contemplating the placement of several art objects. Since early summer, the two women and a team of staff members have been working nearly round-the-clock to install the museum's next exhibition.

It isn't far-fetched to say that Peter Trippi, an Anglophile fascinated by Britain's ancient vitality, has adapted a style traceable to a certain extent to the country's spectacular textiles and costumes.Trippi, a consultant curator of 19th-century British art, helped select items for the Baltimore Museum of Art's new exhibition, "A Grand Design: The Art of the Victoria and Albert Museum." On frequent trips to London, Trippi finds time to shop, making a particular point of stopping at the V&A gift shop, one of his "favorite places on Earth."

Taking bouquets from the usual into the unusualThe arrangement was for a kitchen on a Federal Hill house tour, so Jill Ferguson and Cheryl Milligan used small red-skinned potatoes and asparagus intertwined with lizzies, a sweet pea-like flower. A true spring bouquet for the kitchen!Their business is called Arrangements. The partners, who have a background in design as well as flowers, specialize in creative bouquets. "We like to take a usual event and make it unusual," says Ms. Milligan.They don't have a shop, so rather than doing individual arrangements, they stick to designing flowers for parties, weddings and other events.

The Boston Globe said in an editorial Monday:AMERICA's Western landscape is a unique natural asset, dazzling in its grandeur and fragile despite its massive structures, vulnerable to intrusions that disrupt wildlife, terrain and the simple quality of unspoiled vistas. A good program for protecting such lands by designating them as wilderness areas has already helped a lot. It should be extended to other areas in need of a shield against desecration.Utah is a dramatic case in point. The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance has been engaged in a diligent cataloging of that state's terrain to nominate it for congressional designation as wilderness.

The Baltimore Museum of Art's budget for fiscal 1999 has been adjusted slightly downward, due to the loss of a small amount of endowment income because of the stock market downturn in the second half of 1998. The adjustment amounts to about $200,000, or two percent of an operating budget of about $10 million. The museum has deferred purchase of equipment and hiring of positions, reduced the magazine IBMA TODAY from 10 issues a year to six (but the magazine has been enhanced by a full-color cover and inside spread)

Has anyone not heard that "Titanic" is the most expensive movie ever made? Is there a citizen at large who doesn't know of the problems that bedeviled its production, from director James Cameron's explosive temper to the PCP-laced lobster chowder? Anyone out there remember that the two studios behind "Titanic," 20th Century Fox and Paramount, almost came to blows last summer while deciding when to release the film?Well, forget it all. "Titanic," a three-hour, wide-screen historical romantic epic, steams over its advance hype, leaving the tatters of gossip columns and inside reports in its prodigious wake.
