Executive Directors Letter
November 26, 2013
Happy Turkey Day and welcome to (almost) December! GBCA has a head-spinning schedule for the next few weeks and we hope you will come along for the ride. Last week, we announced that the call for entries for the Rubies Artist Project Grants Program opens on December 1. You can take a look at the grant guidelines on our website and check out Bmoreart’s interview with Program Manager, Sonja Cendak.
On Tuesday, December 3, learn even more about the Rubies, the Baker Artists Awards, and GBCA’s professional development programs (Artists U/Baltimore and the Urban Arts Leadership Program) by attending a D center Design Conversation at the Windup Space in Station North. Additional information sessions for the Rubies are in the pipeline and will be announced in the near future.
Wednesday, December 4, GBCA will hold a Brown Bag in partnership with Maryland Citizen’s for the Arts to discuss using data to tell your story. Speakers will include partners from the Cultural Data Project.
Thursday, December 5, the “b is for Baltimore: Baker Artists Awards 2013 b-grant Winners” exhibition opens at D center. The exhibition is curated with care by the MICA MFA in Curatorial Practices Class of 2015 and includes readings by Jenny O’Grady and Katherine McCord.
Monday, December 9 at 6:30 head back to D center for a professional development seminar with a panel of the superstar 2013 b-grant winners live and in person.
December 12, you can come on out and jam with CJay Philip. As part of the exhibition this 2013 b-grant winner will have everyone up and moving at D center starting at 6:00.
The big exhibition-closing event will take place Sunday, December 15 from 2-4:00 at the MICA Graduate Studio Center on North Avenue. Enjoy performances by Todd Marcus, Ruby Fulton, and Deep Vision Dance Company directed by Nicole Martinell. The closing reception will begin at 4:00 across the street at…you guessed it…D center!
Bring it on!
