Description of Subject Matter: 1 West Mount Vernon Place
1 West Mount Vernon Place, the Walters Art Museum’s 19th-century mansion also known as Hackerman House, is now open after a multi-year transformation.
Situated in the heart of Mount Vernon, 1 West offers visitors exciting new ways to experience the Walters’ renowned collection in one of Baltimore’s most distinctive buildings.
An Architectural Masterpiece
The Walters approached 1 West Mount Vernon Place as a work of art in its own right, creating a new experience of the building and art inside. The project showcases the building’s striking interior features, such as the grand spiral staircase, Tiffany stained-glass skylight, and Baccarat-style chandeliers.
The $10.4 million project was supported by the State of Maryland, the City of Baltimore, the France-Merrick Foundation, Leo and Anna Belle Sirota, Baltimore County, Martha Ann Peters, and other generous donors, and received a Best of Maryland award from Preservation Maryland.

2005 photos: Equipment this year: I used four cameras -- two Fujifilm S7000 cameras (which were plagued by dust inside the lens), a new Fujifilm S5200 (nice but not great and I hated the proprietary xD memory chips), and a Canon PowerShot S1 IS (returned because it felt flimsy to me). I gave my Epson camera to my catsitter. Both of the S7000s were in for repairs over Christmas.
Trips this year: Florida (for Lotusphere), a driving trip down south (seeing sites in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia), Williamsburg, and Chicago.
Number of photos taken this year: 147,000.
