Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini opens tomorrow in Baltimore

A major new exhibition, Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini, opens tomorrow (June 24) at The Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore. The exhibition is curated by magician David London and contains many original Houdini props and artifacts from several private collections. This is the largest exhibition devoted solely to Houdini since Houdini Art and Magic back in 2012.

The exhibition will kick off with a special street fair at 12pm featuring a suspended straitjacket escape by Dai Andrews. Details below.

Sunday, June 24th 12 pm to 4pm 
Join us as we open our newest exhibit, Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini. We will mark this special day with the recreation of one of Houdini’s greatest escapes. Dai Andrews, professional escape artist, will recreate Houdini’s 1916 Baltimore escape when he escapes from a strait jacket while suspended upside down from a 50-foot crane. This impressive feat will be accompanied by other performers and the chance to get a first look at the new exhibit. Buy tickets.

The museum has revealed a full slate of related public programs, one of which features yours truly (Nov. 4). You can see a list of events and find more information on the exhibition at the Jewish Museum of Maryland website.

Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini runs through January 21, 2019.
