Have you always dreamed of writing a play? This summer join us virtually at the Pratt as we partner with the education staff of the Modell Lyric for a biweekly playwriting class that will run for 8 weeks.

At the end of the workshop series, each participant will have a well-drafted ten-minute play and a Certificate of Completion from the Modell Lyric.

California-based artist Kota Ezawa’s National Anthem (2018) is a meditation on patriotism and protest. The singlechannel animated video was inspired by the actions of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other football players who took a knee, sat, raised fists, or locked arms during the national anthem to call attention to police brutality against unarmed black men and social injustice. Ezawa (b. 1969, Germany) creates work that explores and translates significant cultural events into simulations that question the authenticity of both our experiences and retold histories.

In the last two decades, Baltimore's music scene has risen from near obscurity to become one of the best in the country.
But due to the fleeting nature of music and art in the digital world, Baltimore's contributions to the local and national music scene haven’t been documented in one place, and some of these artists and their music are in danger of being forgotten.
