Baltimore’s creative community makes our city a vibrant place to live. From the over 250 museum-quality murals brought to streets across the city by BOPA’s Baltimore Mural Program to Artscape’s sprawling arts experiences, art is everywhere. BOPA exists to support the individuals and organizations who make this city a beautiful and creative place.
When Creatives Thrive, We All Rise.
It’s really hard to put into words how significant an impact BOPA has had on my career and life as a Baltimore City-based artist. There’s no doubt that BOPA’s awards and prizes have been beneficial to me, but the highest value has always been BOPA’s openness to collaborate and showcase all artists of our community regardless of their career status. Most of my career ‘firsts’ as a baby artist happened thanks to BOPA!”
