Who''s Watching
In recent years, Artscape organizers have applied an overarching theme, relevant to both the arts and Baltimore City, into the festival’s creative thinking. For 2018, we’re going back to the basics…ART and celebrating Baltimore’s pop-up institution, Artscape. For “the year we didn’t have a theme” we encourage artists and festival-goers to embrace Artscape for what it is – a fully accessible, 100% FREE, world-class arts festival – right here in the heart of Baltimore City.



We’re not “kidding” around! Artscape’s opening day – Friday, July 20th – is Youth Day! Baltimore youth artists, makers, and performers – come join us this summer, for an opportunity to showcase your creative and artistic talents.

BOPA looks forward to highlighting youth-focused programming (both performance and visual, indoor and outdoors). If you have an idea/proposal, we welcome the opportunity to hear more about your program(s). Email artscape@promotionandarts.org to share more.

If you’d like to go ahead and apply with a specific performance or project in mind, be sure to check out the Performing Arts application and/or the Kidscape application, and note your interest in Youth Day in the application.
