Don’t Miss Out On This One-Day Only Outdoor Arts Festival

Art Outside returns to the Druid Hill Park Reservoir on Sunday, May 18. A showcase of Art and Artists from around Maryland, we invite you to submit your application to show and sell your artwork as we build on the success of the 2013 Art Outside event. Bringing the community together, this day-long celebration will also feature a Maryland Distinguished Artist Gallery, performing arts from Baltimore area schools, strolling entertainment, children’s arts & crafts, some of Baltimore’s best Food Trucks and more!sidebar

This juried arts event harkens back to the city’s annual outdoor art festival that was held on Sundays around the Druid Hill Reservoir during the 1950s and 1960s. Artists displayed their works, most of which were for sale. It created a unique opportunity to connect artists with the community. And now that same opportunity is open to you.  Click Here to register today.

Yoga Arboretum

catch of the day fish (2)Okay, okay. So yesterday we let fly with our unabashed endorsement of checking out the Grand Prix. And we’re not here to back-peddle. But it takes all kinds, as they say. So today we do officially swing 180 degrees, to endorse the anti-Grand Prix: free outdoor yoga at the Cylburn Arboretum. And the best thing about it? It’s happening this Saturday, August 31st. Meaning that it’s a place you can absolutely, 100% count on to be quiet, serene, welcoming, and traffic-free this weekend. Read More →

Sunday, May 19: Art Outside

Has anyone petitioned the city to have our new tagline be “Baltimore: the city of awesome outdoor public festivals”? Maybe it doesn’t quite have a ring to it, but it’s certainly accurate, and describes one of our favorite features of this town. Not only is there always something to do—it often involves being outside, with great music, local food and artists, and our fellow Baltimoreans out to enjoy all that’s going on. One fabulous upcoming example: Art Outside, a juried arts event that will be held on Sunday, May 19th, around the Druid Hill Reservoir (aka our absolute favorite spot for a jog, a picnic, or just an incredible view of the city). If you’re newer to town, and ArtScape is your only reference point for outdoor art festivals in Baltimore, take note: from 1953 to 1968, Druid Hill Park was the site of an annual art festival inspired by the outdoor art sales that were being held in New York’s Washington Square. These festivals gave local artists the opportunity to exhibit their work to the public at a time when alternative and small galleries and exhibition spaces weren’t the norm that they are today. With fond memories of those festivals, Barbara Shapiro set out to bring that spirit– or more accurately, the whole thing– back for today’s Baltimore. And how perfect that it coincides with the reservoir’s 150th anniversary? Read More →

A Little Explosion to Start Your Day

0 Written by: | Monday, Feb 25, 2013 10:01am

“Hey Baltimore, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT??!!!,” one of my Facebook friends wrote yesterday morning. Other folks quickly chimed in about the huge boom and subsequent heavy rumbling that shook the Woodberry/Druid Hill/Hampden region; guesses included a meth lab explosion, a truck that had flipped over and was being dragged down a hill,  or”something huge falling off a cliff.” But rest easy, Baltimore — that explosion was on purpose.

Sex at the Zoo

catch of the day fish (2)We’re filing this one under “only in Baltimore…” But also, we want in. Tired of the same old flowers, chocolates, dinner-and-maybe-a-show-or-a-movie thing for Valentine’s Day? Does the human race’s record on stable, committed relationships depress you? Looking to bring back some of the animal passion that you’re sure your relationship had at some point? Or do you just want confirmation that bodies and biology are gross and we’re all just pre-programmed skin-covered bags of hormones? Well, the Maryland Zoo has just the thing for you and that special someone with whom you share these idiosyncrasies. Cancel the flower delivery and make reservations now for “Sex at the Zoo: A Special Adults Only Event.” Read More →
