Every spring for the past few years, Make Studio artists have been invited to come “up county”, to show their work in special exhibitions highlighting inclusion, creativity, and community in the beautiful public spaces of Baltimore County Public Library's Hereford Branch. Several of our artists have also developed and presented popular mixed media workshops to groups in the library’s The Hive makerspace.
The BMA invited several Baltimore-based galleries and collectives to curate digital exhibitions at tomorrows.artbma.org. Galerie Myrtis, Creative Alliance, ICA Baltimore, and Current Space, among many others, present the work of artists including Ernest Shaw, Zoë Charlton, LaToya Hobbs, Antonio McAfee, and Graham Coreil-Allen. Drop in the virtual galleries, and if you’re able, be sure to support them. All transactions will be conducted by the individual galleries, who will keep all proceeds along with the artists they represent.
Move over, Netflix! BMA Screening Room is a new video streaming service broadcasting the work of 50 video artists. Watch short films and videos created by some of your favorite Baltimore-based artists and discover the work of local visionaries like Erick Antonio Benitez, Nicoletta Daríta de la Brown, Nia Hampton, Chung-Wei Huang, Devin N. Morris, Jules Rosskam, and Abdu Ali and Karryl Eugene of as they lay. More videos will be added throughout the duration of the project.
Now on ZOOM! Screen your new work or work in progress (max length 15 min) at this monthly feedback session from your Baltimore filmmaking peers! Send your short films via email by the Friday before to Creative Alliance Film Curator, Aaron Barlow ([email protected]) to be added to the lineup.
THANK YOU to our generous sponsors Baltimore Filmmakers Collective and CHARM City Filmmakers for helping to make these sessions possible!

Online conversations every Thursday at noon starting May 14
Our world is shifting rapidly. We need to shift.
We at Artists U want to work through these shifts together. We want to build positive, rigorous conversations about surviving and thriving during and beyond this time of uncertainty.
Artists have much to contribute at this moment of crisis. By stabilizing our lives, we can activate our skills as artists to create things in our community and our world: new art, structures, connections, and futures.

NEW EPISODES EVERY SATURDAY
The purpose of the show is to provide a critical examination of society and culture through the intersectional lens of race, gender, and class; more specifically it seeks to provide a COUNTER-NARRATIVE. The Show encourages a reflective assessment and critique of unique standpoints and their potential contribution to popular discourse.
