A BRIEF HISTORY OF ARTSCAPE

Artscape is AMERICA’S LARGEST FREE arts festival, rocking the cultural heart of Baltimore since 1982, it was designed as an Arts Fair and marketed Baltimore as a cultural hub. The newly developed Meyerhoff Symphony Hall was underway, and to draw community support and stimulate economic development and investment in the area, Artscape was born.

Forty years later the festival has extended its footprint far north of the Mt. Vernon section of the city. Expanding in 2017 to Charles Street, near Penn Station, around the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and the University of Baltimore campus. It featured over 140 artists and makers, live concerts on an outdoor stage, and immersive visual arts experiences.
