Our Words Will Still Be Heard is the second exhibition planned in conjunction with Rising Up! an education program for middle school students organized by The Modell Lyric. Curated by Sarah McCann, the exhibition asked professional artists to create work about the power of voice. This work is exhibited alongside art and performances created by Baltimore City middle school students.

At a time when people are being silenced, the arts provide an opportunity to speak out. It is only through the collective rising up of all voices that true equilibrium and harmony can be achieved. Artists were asked to submit work that expressed why speaking up and being heard is important and shared stories related to being silenced and rising up against that silencing. Mono-print workshops were conducted with students at the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women and Henderson-Hopkins Partnership School.

Artists included are Aliana Grace Bailey (MD), Mildred Beltre (NY), Schroeder Cherry (MD), Logan Ryland Dandridge (IN), Nicole Foran (TN), Jessie Houff (MD), Benjamin Jancewicz (MD), Ryan Lewis (MI), Joy Li (MD), Elizabeth Miller (MD), Robert Moon (MD), Elizabeth Shores (PA), Justin Sorensen (OH), Emily Tucci (MD). Youth artists included are from Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, Henderson-Hopkins Partnership School and Mother Seton Academy. Exhibition on view at Jubilee Arts and MICA PLACE April 5 – May 15, 2019.

RISING UP! is a 12-week arts education program for Baltimore City middle school and the Modell Lyric. Expert teaching artists from Wombwork Productions, Inc. work with Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women and Franklin Square Elementary/Middle School. During weekly interdisciplinary workshops, students develop first person narratives in the form of a poem, rhyme, rap, or monologue. This writing is then crafted into a play the students perform.
