Maryland Art Place (MAP) eagerly anticipates the return of its 21st Annual Spring Benefit Exhibition & Silent Auction, Out of Order (OOO) on Friday, April 13, 2018, 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.
Music will be provided by DJ Alexander Jarman. Visit Out of Order's open wine and beer bar and try a specialty cocktail provided by Baltimore Cocktail Week!
OOO is a unique way to get involved with Baltimore’s growing art scene while supporting one of Baltimore’s most established contemporary arts organizations. Proceeds from art sales are split equally between MAP and the artist. Revenue generated at Out of Order directly supports MAP’s programs, exhibitions and opportunities; furthering MAP’s mission to support emerging and mid-career artists and professionals throughout the year. For unsold work, MAP is pleased to offer an opportunity for artists to contribute their work to a local charity, ACCR - The Art Connection of the Capital Region.
MAP is happy to introduce 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 13 @ 7 pm.
