— a new series of “on the ground” experiences designed to highlight and promote the arts in cities and towns from across the state of Maryland.
Each Curate Maryland event will spotlight a selection of one town’s local arts organizations while also fostering dialogue about issues that concern arts advocates at all levels of governance. In essence, Curate Maryland is a site specific celebration, one city or town at a time, by arts lovers from around the state (think pub crawl for arts advocacy).
On May 18th, come spend some time in Hagerstown and connect to the town’s rich cultural offerings and people. Click here for more information.
Brought to you by Maryland Citizens for the Arts.
Guests can visit the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower every Saturday from May 4 through August 31! The tower house artists’ studios and a historic clock room that can all be viewed by visitors.

In this new artistic collaboration Backpack Jax brings the music whilst KLP delivers the moves. For the first time, the French-Iraqi and Cuban-American singing duo Backpack Jax partners with the French dance crew KLP for a high-energy performance full of explosive movements and sound.
