The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. (BOPA) is a non-profit arts and events organization charged with making Baltimore a more creative and vibrant city. The organization’s programs include city-wide special events and festivals (Artscape, Baltimore Book Festival, parades, fireworks) as well as management of historic sites and cultural facilities (School 33 Art Center, Top of the World Observation Level, Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, The Cloisters). As the City’s designated arts council, BOPA administers arts education and cultural programs, awards grants, and coordinates the 1% Public Art Program.
BOPA is now accepting proposals for exhibitions in gallery spaces at the BOPA main office, Bromo Arts Tower and Top of the World Observation Floor at the World Trade Center. Each exhibition will be approximately two months long during the FY15 exhibition season, September, 2014 to June, 2015.
The BOPA office at 10 E. Baltimore Street, 10th Floor, has exhibition space in the lobby and conference room. The office is open M – F, 9am – 5pm, for viewing the spaces.
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is located at 21 South Eutaw Street and has space available on two floors. The building is open to the public for viewing every Saturday 11-5pm. This historic building houses 15 floors of artist studios and has two small rooms on the lobby level and a larger gallery space on the mezzanine (2nd floor) level. Due to its historic nature, the Bromo galleries have some limitations. A site visit is recommended. www.bromoseltzerartstower.com
