387 Feet Above is exhibition of new works that involve mapping Baltimore using views from the Top of the World observation deck. The artists have made works that are installed on panels on the perimeter rails of the space. Baltimore's Festival of Maps is a citywide event from March to June 2008 featuring unique exhibitions and public programs that celebrate maps throughout history - from the artistic to the scientific, from the ancient to the contemporary.

The visitor to the Top of the World Observation Level will see breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of Charm City, 387 feet above the Inner Harbor. Located in the world's tallest pentagonal building, the World Trade Center-Baltimore, visitors will be impressed, inspired and engaged by a bird's eye view of one of America's greatest cities. Learn about Local Landmarks that have created the dramatic skyline, Famous Firsts that have helped build the city, historic events that have shaped a nation and the vibrant people, cultures and communities that have contributed richly to the arts, science and rich historic lore.
