Brick Hill Plant Lab | Who Made This

Marian April Glebes is an emerging conceptual and mixed-media artist whose installations and sculptures are built of the remnants of elaborate processes, engaging with issues of urban environments, the power of the artist, activism, and art for social change. Her work has been included in local and regional solo and group exhibitions. As a curator, she organizes exhibitions and public art installations. In 2015, Glebes became the inaugural Artist-In Residence of the Patricia and Mark Joseph Center for Education at the Baltimore Museum of Art, during which she mounted a year-long exhibition with associated public programming. She’s received a Rubys Artist Award, a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist award, and, for collaborative work in the public realm, 2 NEA Our Town Creative Placemaking Grants and a Baltimore City Anchor Plan Grant.  With a Bachelor's of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art (2004) and a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (2009), Glebes lives in Baltimore, working to develop, protect, and sustain artist-run spaces, serving on the boards of arts/arts-adjacent nonprofits, and teaching at the Maryland Institute College of Art part-time.
