Cultural Organizations

Location: Mt Royal Ave


The Baltimore Museum of Art
CAMP BMA: Creating art with natural materials – The Baltimore Museum of Art will lead art-making activities based on creating 3-D projects with items found in nature. Artists will be encouraged to create a collage on-site that can be added onto for the remainder of summer.

Baltimore Center Stage
In the spirit of the ‘Access for All’ mission, Baltimore Center Stage meets people where they are, bringing theater out of the building, and into the greater community. This is realized through a Mobile Unit initiative, as well as their Education Department which facilitates field trips, visits schools, and hosts a summer day camp.

Baltimore Improv Group
A common feature of many summer camp programs are theater classes which have their roots in improv exercises and games. Baltimore Improv Group will provide Artscape attendees a chance to get back in touch with their camp roots through the playing of and participation in these games.

Baltimore Jewelry Center
The Baltimore Jewelry Center will provide the attendees of Artscape with a fun, hands-on experience while promoting the arts scene and arts education in Baltimore. They will have a make and take component where people attending Artscape can come to the booth and make "merit badges" commemorating whatever they would like.

Baltimore Sister Cities
The Baltimore Sister Cities will connect Artscape visitors to a Global Camp Experience. They will encourage the explorers and adventurers by offering global opportunities with hometown connections. Did you know that Baltimore and Kawasaki, Japan have been hosting Boy Scout Exchanges for 30 years? Learn about this and so much more! Festival-goers can make friendship bracelets with colors and charms from Baltimore’s sister cities; while the Boy Scouts will also do demonstrations on knot tying and outdoor skills. Each Baltimore sister city will be identified with a big merit badge relating to the work they do. Activities and displays will highlight committee activities through the lens of Summer Camp. The focus will be on activities such as: a recycling and environmental awareness theater program from Rotterdam happening in South Baltimore; the Boy Scout exchange with Kawasaki and Chinese artists painting.

Baltimore Jazz Alliance
Learn about the jazz scene in Baltimore – from the Baltimore Jazz Fest to the smallest clubs – happening throughout the year in Baltimore. We will have information about summer music camps, engage interested people in conversation, and educate them about the jazz scene in Baltimore, and about the Baltimore Jazz Alliance’s role in that scene.

Open Works Mobile
Open Works provides interactive technologies for attendees to try out themselves in their mobile maker space. A big part of camp is arts and crafts, so Open Works will offer fun, family-friendly, hands-on craft activities with a technology twist.

Planned Parenthood of Maryland
Planned Parenthood of Maryland is the largest provider of reproductive and sexual healthcare in the US.  In Maryland, they provide quality healthcare and education to thousands of people every year. At Artscape 2017, Planned Parenthood will reach out to a diverse community to educate them about health center locations, services, and how they can get involved. The camping practice of ‘Leave No Trace’ will be re-imagined as Reproductive and Sexual Health Guidelines.  Ex. "Plan ahead and prepare" would become "Plan ahead, bring protection!"

St. Paul's School for Girls
The arts are alive at St. Paul's School for Girls (SPSG), and they are sharing their programming - including curricular arts, The Dance Conservatory (TDC), and SPSG Summer camps - with the Artscape audience! SPSG offers a myriad of educational arts opportunities and summer camp programs for children ranging from Pre-K to 18 years old. Several members of faculty and staff from each program will be at SPSG’s booth, eager to share photos of the Upper School musical Hairspray, student-built masks from the Middle School production The Lion King, Jr., clips from the Young Filmmakers summer camp program nand more!
