Tony Labate (b. 1989) was one of the first artists at Make Studio in Baltimore in 2010. He is a reliably expert source of information about classic films, television, and music of the late 20th century (among many other things). He is a resident of Catonsville, MD, a graduate of the St. Elizabeth School, and, in his words, “a would-be writer of poetry” who also loves to draw. As a high school student Tony began working with the residents of the Charlestown Retirement Community, who he affectionately referred to as his “oldsters,” providing entertaining presentations on topics enjoyed by both Tony and the residents.
