Spring is just around the corner!

Executive Director’s Letter
March 19, 2013

Can you feel it?  In the midst of Maryland weather insanity, spring is making its presence known.  From intrepid daffodils budding under snow to the return of bird songs in the morning, it’s just around the corner and we can’t wait.  This is a great time to start planning your outdoor experiences—the BMA sculpture garden, a topiary, parks—the Baltimore region has it all.  For those of you interested in exploring the city, check out Visit Baltimore’s new mobile application to help “…uncover all the exciting events, restaurants, attractions, and more.”

Even a short drive in the lovely weather will take you to the galleries and performances at UMBCTowsonthe Gordon Center, and Howard County Community College.

Break out your bike to find your way to the murals of Baltimore’s Arts Districts (Bromo TowerHighlandtown, and Station North) and remember that MICA’s May Artwalk is also on its way.

This is also a great time to discover our past through the lens of the War of 1812 and the 100th anniversary of the death of Harriet Tubman.  Check out the many Baltimore National Heritage Area walking tours including Mt. Vernon, Pennsylvania Avenue, and Fells Point.

Get out there and explore,
Jeannie
