An evening of entertainment, art, fine food and libations.
Join Maryland Art Place at MAP in celebrating our 2019 Fall Benefit on Saturday, November 9th from 7pm to Midnight.
This year's theme is Great Gatsby, so come in your finest Roaring 20s attire. Enjoy live music and delicious food to the backdrop of our 2nd Tri-Annual Maryland State Artist Registry Juried Exhibition. Get excited for an evening of live entertainment by performing artists selected from the 2nd Tri-Annual MSAC Juried Show. Performance artists include Dominique Zeltzman, Shonnita Johnson, Stephanie Barber, and Nicoletta de La Brown. David Page will perform in the main gallery. Noah McWilliams' new media work will be on view on the 2nd floor. Aaron Oldenburg will have a VR station on the 5th floor, where Virginia Sperry’s wonderful art installation “Life Forms” can be viewed.
Mariah Bonner, a Baltimore born and raised entertainer and cabaret singer will ease us into a night of dancing. Mariah will be followed by JUMPIN' JUPITER, a lively rockabilly band who can't wait to shake up the speakeasy, so get ready to get rowdy! Drag Queens Bambi Galore and Miss Calculated will be on-site passing out candy cigarettes and dressed to impress in their Gatsby-themed attire. Pixilated will be there to document the evening. Pose in your 1920's garb and get tipsy while we cheer to MAP!
Get a drink at the local watering hole supplied by Union Craft Brewing who generously donated some brews for the event. Guest Bartender Aaron Joseph will be serving prohibition themed cocktails with the vodka and rum so kindly donated by VDKA6100 and Papa’s Pilar. Spirits of Mt. Vernon is bringing the wine and champagne. But let’s not forget about food which Noona’s graciously donated. The menu leaves little to be desired. So chow down and drink to your heart’s content, celebrating MAP.
Cant make the main event? Come to the After-Party. The After-Party includes FREE adult beverages and entertainment by JUMPIN' JUPITER and is only $40 (free to main event ticket holders). There is no party like an after-party! Get your tickets while they last!
