ABOUT THE ROTATING HISTORY PROJECT
Through various artistic mediums, the Rotating History Project aims to draw attention to the threads running through our history, culture and environment, without compromising the integrity of our subject matter. For us, history does not begin and end on a page. It moves all around us; alive wherever we may turn our head next. It's a tool for informing our present and future. Although our mediums are the arts, we see our target audience as the larger community, far beyond the scope of art patrons and practitioners. The Rotating History Project was founded by Baltimore based artists Heather Rounds and Teddy Johnson, who work in collaboration with a variety of individuals, specific to the themes of each event. Their first project was The Child Ballads Show in September 2010.
