Weight of the Nation @ Creative Alliance Tonight

For those who don’t already know, Baltimore’s Urbanite Magazine is currently in the middle of its 2012 Healthy Food Challenge. The Project is an ongoing and multifaceted effort which includes a request for grant proposals, magazine articles, food policy themed events and more.

It’s pretty interesting stuff. When they screened Food Stamped at the library last month, we had quite a lot to say about it. Tonight, they’re screening the HBO documentary Weight of the Nation at Creative Alliance.

We’ve got surprisingly little to say about this film, except that it’s probably interesting and important and you should go see it.

It’s running in conjunction with a gallery exhibition which is on view for one week only and runs through July 13.

Tonight’s screening is free and begins at 6 pm, although if you can’t make it you can also watch the entire film in four parts on Youtube, or presumably whenever they feel like showing it on HBO.


Creative Alliance is located at 3134 Eastern Avenue in Highlandtown.
