21st Annual Benefit Exhibition and Silent Auction
Maryland Art Place (MAP) eagerly anticipates the return of its 21st Annual Spring Benefit Exhibition & Silent Auction, Out of Order (OOO) on Friday, April 13, 2018, at 7’oclock in the evening. The iconic fundraiser will take place at 218 West Saratoga Street located in the Bromo Arts and Entertainment District on Baltimore’s west side. One of the most celebrated annual events among the Baltimore arts community, Out of Order (OOO) is a one-night-only opportunity for collectors to acquire contemporary art at unbelievably low silent auction prices.
By covering the walls from floor to ceiling, Out of Order provides a salon-style display space for hundreds of artists to hang their work wherever they please. OOO plays host to a variety of artists and professionals practicing in the visual arts and is a great opportunity for students and emerging artists to get their feet wet in Baltimore’s creative sector.
This years theme for OOO is CASINO! Feeling lucky? Put on your cocktail attire and join the celebration in support of local & regional artists. Out of Order will be hosted by the fabulous Bambi Galore, and music will be provided by DJ Alexander Jarman. Stick around for the after-party, featuring the soulful sounds of Joy Postell! Costumes are encouraged and awarded - dress to impress! MAP will be hosting a celebrity look-alike costume contest hosted by Bambi Galore! A special gift basket provided by Mouth Party Caramels will be awarded to the winner of the costume competition.
Visit Out of Order's open wine and beer bar sponsored by VOGA and Union Craft Brewing and try a specialty cocktail provided by Sticky Rice! La Cuchara will be providing an array of small bites for the evening by Chef Ben Lefenfeld, with sweet treats provided by Insomnia Cookies.
