$250 Million Diverted From Ravens Football Stadium
City of Monuments To Become City of Museums
The City of Baltimore, in collaboration with the Cultural Cryptanalysts Collective of Baltimore, unveils today the creation of nine new museums in neighborhoods across the city. Using $250 million in funds diverted from the Ravens Football Stadium (a project in which the State of Maryland would channel large quantities of cash into the hands of private individuals with proven track-records of disrespect for local communities), the city will build nine $5 million state-of-the-art showpiece museums, each with a $20 million endowment.
Museum (myoo ze em), n. a building or place where works of art, scientific specimens, and other objects of permanent value are kept and displayed. [L Gk Mouselon, equiv. to Mous(a) MUSE + eion locative suffix]
"Cities, I think, are collective works of art. They grow very slowly, and most of them have very definite characters. This one certainly has."

The CCC would like to acknowledge here The Contemporary, Baltimore's "Museum Without Walls," for their superb lead in helping to transform this city's cultural landscape - BUT ENOUGH IS NOT ENOUGH! The goal of this latest CCC project is to activate the entire city of Baltimore as a living cultural space.
