One of the best parts about my job is traveling for "check-ins"... time to sit with arts constituents to ask, "how is it going?" I am happy to report an abundance of creative activity in November! There is only enough space to share some highlights, but I invite you for a quick trip across Maryland:
  • BALTIMORE CHORAL ARTS opened its season with a beautifully sung concert in the newly restored Shriver Hall on the campus of Johns Hopkins University.
  • Garrett College is building a COMMUNITY EDUCATION AND PERFORMING ARTS CENTER to enhance the arts offerings for Western Maryland.
  • BRILLIANT BALTIMORE combined Light City and the Baltimore Book Festival into an exciting 10-day event at the Inner Harbor.
  • The Allegany Arts Council is exhibiting the nuanced work of Gerald Snelson in ART AND CRAFT OF THE PUPPET.
  • First Lady Yumi Hogan honored students from across the state at the FALL STUDENT ARTWORK EXHIBITION in Annapolis.
  • The WORCESTER COUNTY DEVELOPMENTAL CENTER is transitioning its education programs to emphasize arts education and the benefits of the creative process for developmentally disabled adults. 
  • The gallery space of the Arts Council of Calvert County is currently exhibiting a wide variety of work in WINTER WONDERLAND.
  • The Olney Theatre Center opened a spectacular production of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN.
  • REVISITING THE PINK TRAILER is the latest, and very compelling, exhibition at the Washington County Arts Council.
  • Maryland Citizens for the Arts hosted ARTSLAB 2019 at Howard Community College focusing on the arts ecosystem.
  • The Baltimore Museum of Art opened a site-converted installation, MICKALENE THOMAS: A MOMENT'S PLEASURE (which was also featured in the New York Times).
  • The MAGICAL EXPERIENCES ARTS COMPANY is in residence at the William S. Baer School (serving children with multiple disabilities).
I invite you to discover the rich creative offerings being generated in every region!
