ART SEMINAR GROUP ONLINE PROGRAM
Recent Tendencies in Contemporary Art: The Geographies of Contemporary Art: Globalism, Mobility, and Site-Specificity
Kerr Houston, professor of art history, theory and criticism, Maryland Institute College of Art
In conjunction with the exhibition Annet Couwenberg: Sewing Circles at UMBC's Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture, the Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) presents Cleft: An Art & Engineering Collaboration.
Are we becoming an extension of the machine or the other way around?
A discussion around how our own personal biases can shape the impact of our cultural institutions on the communities they serve.
Let's take a deeper dive into why certain communities may not engage with your cultural institution. Are we truly as diverse in our offerings as we believe we are? Does our staff reflect the community that we serve? Are we telling complete narratives in our institutions? To what degree does my upbringing and diversity views impact my ability to successfully serve my institution and its constituents?
Guitarist/composer Joel Harrison reunites his groundbreaking group Free Country this October. The concept for the band started in 2002 when Harrison released the first of three Free Country records on the Act label, in which he created radically creative jazz arrangements of country and Appalachian tunes. The success of the record, which included a then barely known singer named Norah Jones, brought Harrison acclaim throughout Europe and the U.S. In 2018 Harrison recorded the 3rd Free Country record with luminaries such as David Binney (his longtime ally), Brian Blade, and Jon Cowherd.
UMBC's Department of Music presents tenor Andrew Sauvageau and pianist Hui-Chuan Chen in a performance of Franz Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin. Widely considered to be one of Schubert’s masterpieces, and one of the most important song cycles in Western music, the 1823 evening-length work consists of twenty songs with text by Schubert’s contemporary Wilhelm Müller.
Join us in Fells Point as Bismark-Wilson Gallery presents Michael Chandler: Transition as Muse. Chandler’s work is always linked to the surrounding landscape, his ever-present source of inspiration. Since recently relocating from New York to New Mexico, his “language” for expressing the landscape has changed.
There will be two receptions for this show, on Saturday, October 9, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 10, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Meet the artist and enjoy refreshments.

***All tours offered on a pay-only-what-you-can basis and proceeds benefit The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum***
The historic Poe House is currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 response in Maryland, but that doesn’t mean Poe’s chamber door is closed to you online. Join us for a live virtual tour of the historic Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum, led by a real museum docent.
Our 26th annual members' extravaganza back!
Don't miss the opportunity to have your artwork on the walls of our main gallery (yes, on our actual walls), or your fabulous talents showcased on our stage. Who knows... you might be the next BIG thing!
Did you know that The BIG Show was the very first Creative Alliance program? That first event led to twenty-five years of artistic expression, community, cultivation of young minds, and so much joy.
Tootsie, the hilarious Tony Award®-winning musical is coming to Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center for a limited one-week engagement Tuesday, November 30 through Sunday, December 5, 2021. Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie! This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime.
A live online venue for artists to perform & support living expenses, and for the community to connect through live music despite COVID cancellations.
Tune in to concerts by professional musicians and music students on Facebook or Instagram and support artists through suggested online “admission fees” directly contributed to artists.
We are excited to announce the Bern Unit’s new radical reading collective!!

We’ll be tackling readings and videos from thinkers across the globe and brainstorming practical application in this incredible moment in human history.
