BALTIMORE--Spoon Popkin '90 and Lee Sinoski of Apology by Proxy offer apologies to participants who  share, in three minutes or less, an experience they feel they are owed one.  Participants, when ready, are then asked to pass the apology on to someone else who needs one.

Apology By Proxy Appearances
Hampdenfest, Saturday, Sept. 12, noon-2 p.m.
In front of MINÁS, 815 W. 36th St.

Station North Second Saturdays, Saturday, Sept. 12, 7-8:30 p.m.
120 W. North Ave.

Northenmost Southern Exposure, opening: Friday, Oct. 2, 8-11 p.m.
The Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St.

What began as a small piece of performance art has shown itself to be a tool for change and learning. The sudden moment of intimacy with a complete stranger can be overwhelming. The apology is genuine and works. "I'm Sorry" proves to be a potent phrase.
