Never taken an improv class before? Well now is your chance to try it out with experienced BIG instructors!
This introductory workshop is designed to give potential students an opportunity to experience what a class is like before committing to a full course.
Through simple, fun and supportive games, participants will explore basic concepts like playfulness, listening and agreement – all in a safe and comfortable group setting geared specifically toward those who are new to improv.
Dubbed “the high priests of brass” (Newsweek), the American Brass Quintet has set the standard for the modern classical brass ensemble. Embracing the past and the present, the group performs a program of Renaissance works punctuated with a world premiere inspired by the tradition of madrigals and motets.

UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. Drawn from his archive at UMBC, the 55 works in this exhibition created between 1962 and 2006 highlight Fichter’s exploration of the human condition across photography, printmaking, and painting. Fichter employs shifting moods and mediums as well as wit, humor, and satire to deliver trenchant critiques of war, nuclear proliferation, and environmental disaster.
UMBC's Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents Distal’s Musk: Rosy Keyser, featuring new works by artist Rosy Keyser, a painter and sculptor known for working in large-scale gestural, tactile abstraction. Further details and related programing announcements forthcoming.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 31, from 5 to 7 p.m., and the gallery will open for regular viewing hours on Friday, November 1.
Admission to the exhibition and all related events is free.
This exhibition is on view through March 2020. The MdHS museum is open Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm, and on Sundays, 12 pm-5 pm.
The exhibition features one-of-a-kind appliqué quilts created by Baltimore-native Mimi Dietrich. Ms. Dietrich is one of Maryland’s and the nation’s most accomplished quilters. In 2015 she was inducted into The Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana. “Hometown Girl” tells Ms. Dietrich’s story as a life-long Marylander and Baltimore native, and draws inspiration from the many students she has taught over her 35-year career.
