59 South Carroll Street, Frederick was boarded up since 2010.
This building suffered a devastating fire.
The pre-Revolutionary War era building was left with no roof. This stone shell sat vacant for six years, waiting for a transformation.
Special thanks to Rusty Hauver and the General Engineering Company for generously donating the use of 59 South Carroll Street, Frederick for this community initiative.

Through her art, she demonstrates how present reality is not a given and can be crafted to make life more fulfilling. As founder of Biome Studio, art is her tool to shift the paradigm of everyday life.
