'Fish Out of Water'
The days are numbered for those "Fish Out of Water" sculptures all around Baltimore. Soon, unfortunately, they'll be, well, swimming with the fishes. On Oct. 25, they'll start to come down, with an official send-off at the Inner Harbor at noon. A couple of the fish will move on to the area outside the Walters Art Museum, on North Charles Street, and others will be taken to the Columbus Center for improvement and patchwork by their artists. All fish will be put up for auction in November at the Walters and online.
But for now, you've still got time to catch some fish around town. In addition to the original 130 or so throughout the city, a whole new school of more than 30 fish will be on view now through Oct. 25. The following list gives the names of the new fish, the artist and location.
