The Arts have the power to do all this and more! As Baltimore’s arts council, events center and film office, we make culture accessible to all Baltimoreans through programming such as Bright StARTS arts education program, events such as Free Fall Baltimore, which brings together nearly 80 local cultural organizations to offer free programming to over 30,000 participants throughout October, along with annual festivals such as Artscape, Light City and the Baltimore Book Festival. BOPA organizes Baltimore’s most exciting events, bringing together hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors for joyful shared experiences.
And, it’s not just the big events; BOPA programs, such as the MECU Neighborhood Events Grants, make our communities more vibrant and creative places to live. BOPA allows Baltimore residents to enjoy the best parts of city life, like the Baltimore Farmers’ Market and Bazaar under the Jones Fall Expressway on Sunday mornings, or the iconic Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, where you can tour throughout the year and see the inner-workings of the newly renovated clock!
We make Baltimore a great place for artists to live and work. Whether it’s competing for the $25,000 Janet and Walter Sondheim Prize, participating in the annual Open Studio Tour or by investing in our Arts & Entertainment Districts, BOPA supports our creative economy in a multitude of ways. And through the Baltimore Film Office, the one stop shop for film production in the city, we help bring thousands of employment opportunities to residents of the region.
