Due to the continuing threat from the COVID health crisis, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) announces that Artscape, the Baltimore summer tradition, will not be held in 2021. The annual event attracts an average audience of more than 300,000 people to Midtown Baltimore and the Station North Arts & Entertainment District. Avoiding large public gatherings will help to ensure the health and safety of residents and visitors.
BOPA looks forward to resuming traditional citywide celebrations, during the summer of 2022. Until then, Artscape fans and the Baltimore community can still experience some of the art, food, and festival atmosphere of Artscape every Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to noon at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar under the Jones Falls Expressway. Additionally, one beloved element of the Artscape festivities — the 16th annual Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize will take place this summer, featuring an in-person finalists’ exhibition at the Walters Art Museum, from Thursday, May 27, through Sunday, July 18, 2021.
