You’ve seen it – from the street, on the horizon – the whole time you’ve lived in Baltimore: the Bromo-Seltzer Tower! But if you’re like 99.9% of us, you’ve never actually been inside of this beautiful building, Baltimore’s homage to Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio. We think it’s time to correct that omission. Join YAAM on Saturday, July 14th (Bastille Day!), at 10:30 a.m., for a group tour of the tower, courtesy of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. You will learn about the remarkable life of “Captain” Isaac Emerson, the multi-millionaire pharmacist who invented Bromo-Seltzer and who built the tower to beautify the factory where this headache and digestive remedy was produced. At the top of the tower, you’ll get a chance to see the clock room – which runs the largest four-dial gravity-driven clock in the world (bigger, even, than Big Ben in London!) – and to view the work of dozens of artists whose studios now occupy the tower. The tour will last about one hour, and the price of admission to the tower is $8 per person.
