Event Spotlight: Bromo Arts Walk

You know (and love??) us. But did you know we're part of a whole neighborhood of artist-driven activity in downtown Baltimore? So much so that there's now a whole district dedicated to art here!


Twice a year we all open our doors at the same time over the course of one evening to share a little bit of our diverse art practices with you.


Get ready to discover new work and great artists during the Bromo District Arts Walk this Thursday, June 23rd, 5PM - 9PM. RSVP for special perks here.
