Baltimore + Graduate Students

Opportunities for Artists in Baltimore

Baltimore has a different feel from cities like New York and even Washington, D.C., because there is less emphasis on upscale gallery representation—the scene is more community- and artist-driven.

If you’ve looked at some of the links above, you can see some of the communal, D.I.Y., tireless ethic that drives Baltimore’s art scene. More than that, there are excellent support opportunities for artists and designers as they finish their graduate education: The Baker Artist Awards and Sondheim Prize are great examples. 

For designers, the Center for Design Practice and Social Design program have been revolutionizing design. They have created opportunities for designers to have an impact on the operation of a major city.
