ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Baltimore One-Minute Play Festival will feature over 50 brand new One-Minute Plays by nearly 30 local or Baltimore-rooted playwrights. Burgeoning playwrights will be working alongside prominent artistic voices in the region. OMPF takes the temperature of a collective artistic conscious through these series of pulsing moments.
Playwrights were selected by invitation and asked to engage in OMPF’s playmaking approach. Playwrights are encouraged to write about anything they are passionate about, and, as emerging themes or ideas become apparent, the plays are curated and presented in clusters to reflect those elements. Teams of directors and actors work to stage each cluster of plays.
Artists from EMP Collective, Single Carrot Theatre, Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS), Glass Mind Theatre, and other Baltimore theatre artists are among the participants.

In a report released by ArtPlace, an initiative of national and regional foundations, federal agencies and major banks to accelerate creative placemaking, Baltimore’s Downtown was identified as one of the 44 Top ArtPlaces in the nation. Cities with neighborhoods that have been exceptionally successful at combining art, artists and venues for creativity and expression with independent businesses, retail shops and restaurants, and a walkable lifestyle to make vibrant neighborhoods were singled out by ArtPlace for their livability and creativity.
Autospa was one of the highlights of Artscape 2012. Conceived and performed by artists Nina Sarnelle, Erin Womack, Agnes Bolt and Scott Andrew, it was a total mind and body experience that many people may not have been able to see first hand. If you missed it..or want to relive it, sit back, relax and check out the video!

Downtown arts collective, EMP, is opening their first exhibition of 2013 on January 18th. “Reject the Gaze” features the paintings and drawings of local visual artists Lacey Anderson and Sylvia O.
In “Reject the Gaze,” the artists are stylistically juxtaposed yet share a similar effect on the viewer: both Anderson and Ortiz turn notions of the flesh on their head and directly challenge the viewer’s gaze on the female form.
