Another Wintry Blast and Busy Week for Baltimore’s Cultural Community!

I am starting to take the weather personally.  Admittedly, there was something nice about hunkering down yesterday and yes, the sunshine is starting to raise my spirits.  Dare we hope this is the last wintery blast before spring really takes hold?
Before Monday’s storm shut us all down, it was a busy week for the cultural community.  Among the highlights was Baltimore School for the ArtsExpressions.  The students are bright stars.  Their talent, heart, and passion never fail to amaze and move me.  What a gem we have right here in Baltimore sending talent of all kinds out into the world. Another highlight was The American Craft Council Show, which featured the work of several GBCA members, including Baltimore Clayworks and their resident artist and 2012 b-grant winner Yoshi Fujii.
Last week, we shared a link to the discussion about women in theatre that was blowing up the blogosphere, in part driven by posts of Baltimore’s own Elissa Goetschius, Artistic Director of the Strand Theater Company.  This past Sunday, The Washington Post ran an extensive article about women and museum leadership, including a look at both Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.  The piece featured The Walters Art Museum’s Julia Marciari Alexander, Baltimore Museum of Art’s Doreen Bolger, and American Visionary Art Museum’s Rebecca Hoffberger.  Brava!
Due to the weather, GBCA’s Happy Hour with the Bromo Arts District has been rescheduled for Monday, March 17 at EMP Collective.  We hope you will come on out for a taste of the neighborhood. 
Please tell me it’s time to put away my snow boots!
