Under the auspices of the National
Sculpture Society of New York, the Mu-
nicipal Art Society, the Sculpture Exhibition Soci-
ety and the Architectural Club of Baltimore, a great
exhibition of American sculpture has been held in
the Fifth Regiment Armory at Baltimore, Mel. The
drill hall, which provided nearly an acre and a third
of floor space, was turned into a garden by the intro-
duction of greenery, and therein were set forth over
five hundred pieces of sculpture, in plaster, marble
and bronze. Almost every sculptor in America
was represented, and the display was not only the
largest, but the best, of its kind which has ever been
held in this country. It opened on the fourth of
April and continued to the first of May, and awa-
kened wide interest. During twenty-eight days it
was in progress it was visited by over 60,000 per-
sons, the majority of whom paid for admission.
Ten thousand seven hundred and forty-six cata-
logues were sold at twenty-five cents apiece. Sales
amounted to $3,276.
