Jessica Moss is the curator/art world dynamo behind The Roll Up. These community redevelopment projects, with a sister site in Pittsburgh, allow artists to both work in and become part of vulnerable neighborhoods. Residents engage in public dialogues and collaborate with locals on their new bodies of work. East Baltimore’s $HAN Wallace is the current resident, occupying The Roll-Up’s space in Camp Greene, which was recently renovated by minority-owned businesses.
