Maryland Art Place (MAP) eagerly anticipates the return of its 22nd Annual Spring Benefit Exhibition & Silent Auction, Out of Order (OOO) on Friday, April 5, 2019, 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.
MAP is happy to continue KIDOOO, a youth version of Out of Order. KIDOOO was created as an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work in a major arts venue, extending MAP's services to students in elementary, middle and high school level art classes. The opening of KIDOOO will take place in tandem with Out of Order on April 5 @ 7 pm. Parents will receive reduced tickets to the opening ($25) while participating youth artists will receive FREE admission to KIDOOO on April 5th.
This years theme for OOO is Numerology! Put on your cocktail attire and join the celebration in support of local & regional artists. 22 is a master number and expands on creative possibilities! To highlight these creative possibilities, Clairvoyant Lady will be doing everything from palm to tarot and psychic readings.
