Artists U is a program founded and directed by Andrew Simonet in Philadelphia. Artists U is a grassroots, artist-run platform for changing the working conditions of artists. The program includes workshops and individualized planning sessions with artist facilitators.

The Urban Arts Leadership Program will provide similar professional development mentoring with a specific focus on supporting artists of color. The program is currently being developed by David D. Mitchell, who also serves as a facilitator for Artists U/Baltimore.

Location:  Arena Players, 801 McCulloh Street

Preach! is a new body of work from Baltimore-based artist Jeffrey Kent that draws parallels between the Civil Rights Movement and the ongoing debate over marriage equality in the United States.

Preach! is on display in the Herbert Bearman Art Galley of the Frederick-Douglass – Isaac Myers Maritime Park Museum from February 7 – March 31. The installation was developed by students of MICA’s Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS).

EXCHANGE: a home-based artist residency is a thesis project by Hyejung Jang, a Curatorial Practice MFA candidate at Maryland Institute College of Arts (MICA) in partnership with School 33 Art Center. EXCHANGE is designed to explore new ways and potential for forming intimate connections between artists and community members by supporting emerging artists, and integrating contemporary art into everyday life.

This is a two-month long project—from January 23 to March 23, 2013—placing two emerging international artists with two local families in Baltimore. It transforms the home into a fertile platform of new experience, cross-cultural dialogue, social integration, education, and art while the artists live with the host families. The work created by the artist during their residency will be exhibited at School 33 from March 22 to May 25.

The project is currently in the phase of raising funding through a Kickstarter campaign.

School 33 Art Center has been awarded an Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. The $100,000 grant will help to fund four projects designed to transform the center and expand community outreach over the next two years. School 33 and eight other arts organizations were chosen from a total of 85 applicants.
