Executive Director’s Letter
October 22, 2013
Last Tuesday’s celebration of Baker Artists awardees was incredible. As part of Free Fall Baltimore, Contemporary Arts, Inc. and the Enoch Pratt Free Library featured music, dance, and spoken word performance with the amazing Carl Grubbs leading the way on saxophone. Barbara Grubbs makes sure this in an annual event, so keep an eye out for next year. AND, if you are an artist, don’t forget to nominate yourself on the Baker Artists Awards site. If you do it now, you will be eligible for first $250 wildcard prize that will be selected on November 1.
It was great to see a good crowd at the GBCA Healthcare event last week. Even with the glitchy Affordable Care Act computer system, there were lots of questions and helpful information from HealthCare Access Maryland. If you missed it, go to the GBCA website to view the slides and get contact information for Navigators who can personally help you through the process. Many thanks go out to Theatre Project for being our host for the evening.
As for upcoming events, the next GBCA Happy Hour will be on November 4 at Single Carrot Theatre and will celebrate the Charm City Fringe Festival.
All the best,
