Druid Hill Park

Wait, what?

Baltimore musician Stephen Strohmeier spotted this plaque at Druid Hill Park. It relates the history of the park, purchased by the city in 1860 using the revenue from a one-cent tax on nickel horse-drawn tram fares, in the always classy Gill Sans font on a gold background. Read More →

Catch of the Day, Druid Hill

This Sunday: Art Outside

Art Festival

catch of the day fish (2)You know summer is afoot in Baltimore when the city begins to overflow with fabulous outdoor festivals. One of our very favorites? Art Outside—the day-long festival that recaptures the spirit of the historic outdoor festival that was held on Sundays around the Druid Hill Reservoir during the 1950s and 1960s. Last year’s festival was such a hit that it’s literally back by popular demand, and will be held this Sunday, May 18th. About last year’s festival, one visitor raved, “To see the diversity of attendees melding among the art, entertainment and sheer fun – all within a unique and naturally picturesque setting in the city – was a welcome breath of fresh air.” With reviews like that, these folks must be doing something very, very right. They’ve got one of our favorite outdoor settings in the city, and a selection of the best artists and artisans around. But what’s more, they’ve got the true spirit of what an arts festival should be—a celebration of creativity and community that’s fun and inspiring for all. Read More →

SOGH ART TRUCK MOCKUPWhat makes Art Outside such a fun and unique event is, among other things, the diverse collection of artists that will be at this day-long, free arts festival on Sunday, May 18 at Druid Hill Park. One of those artists is Shawn Theron who will be unveiling Baltimore’s first-ever Art Truck at Art Outside. Similar to a Food Truck, Shawn’s Art Truck serves fun and varied artwork instead of food. The truck enables Shawn to take his artwork on the road to a variety of different venues like Art Outside, open the doors and show his work instantly.

#6 – On the ART TRUCK! approx 4’ x 2’ $120

The Art Truck is designed to engage and invite his audience in for a closer look. Shawn hopes passers by step inside to see his art firsthand. Paintings hang on the walls of the truck, they are stacked in bins, and drape onto the outside of the truck, too, once he stops and parks at a location. The Art Truck is great news for Shawn’s followers, which are many. He has sold 15 thousand paintings and counting.

Shawn and his Art Truck will be at Art Outside at Druid Hill Park on Sunday, May 18. This day long, free arts festival has doubled in size since last year and will feature more than 80 artists, strolling performers and musical groups, an area for “hands-on” arts and crafts for children, Baltimore’s best food trucks, and more. The event will be held rain or shine and there is plenty of free parking.

For more information about Shawn Theron and his art truck, come to Art Outside or visit www.sogh.org. For more information about Art Outside, visit www.artoutsidemd.org.
