Details:

American sculptor Sir Moses Jacob Ezekiel created the statue of Poe that now resides at UB. It was commissioned by the Women's Literary Club of Baltimore in 1907. The statue was dedicated on October 20, 1921 and was originally located in Wyman Park. Due to vandalism and neglect at the site, the statue was moved to UB on the recommendation of the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore.
In 1983, it was moved to the plaza of the law school of the University of Baltimore. Poe's left hand is raised to indicate that Poe was listening to ethereal music.
In its new home, the Poe statue has been embraced as a sort of school mascot. Students have their pictures taken with the statue. A flower may often be found in the statue's lapel and, on special occasions, one hand holds a helium balloon.

What’s the difference between an OPEN edition and a LIMITED edition?

An edition refers to the number of art prints created from one image. Open editions refer to a print that may be produced an indefinite number of times. Limited editions refer to a finite number of prints that are made from one image. Limited editions are numbered by the artist with two numbers separated by a slash.

The first number indicates the sequence in which the print was made. The second number indicates the total number of prints in the edition. A print numbered “10/50” is the tenth print made in an edition of fifty. Once the fifty prints in the edition have been produced, the edition is retired and will not be printed again.

Limited editions also include a number of artist’s proofs that are retained by the artist for her own use or that are sometimes sold by the artist after the limited edition has been exhausted. Artist’s proofs are designated “AP” and numbered in the same manner as limited edition prints.
