This summer, we opened up the doors of our first space, MONDO, to the public for a soft opening period. We wanted to bring people into the space, experiment with programming, and incorporate those experiences into our overall design! We were fortunate enough to host some amazing events – ranging from large-scale gallery exhibitions to a full-run new play to music shows to the Charm City Fringe Theater Festival – and now we’re back to work doing final renovations on the space.
We’re closed for a few months and will reopen around March to our full capacity with regular hours! Expect: regular programming, a full bar, way more artist studios, and a beautiful new space to call home!

This August, the board accepted the resignation of its Executive Director from staff and board. As a result, the organization has transitioned to new interim management and has undertaken a search for a new Executive Director. Here is the most recent update on the transition, a timeline of our process to this point, and the principles of the organization that guided our decision-making during this process. Additionally, please see our original public statement.
To continue the conversation and receive updates, we encourage you to contact Founding Interim Executive Director, Carly J. Bales. We’ll be posting conversation opportunities, community events, and programming here as they develop.
