Profile of the Week: Make Studio

Make Studio works to create an inclusive, supportive space for adults with disabilities to explore their artistic talents and create their own work. The artists that attend Make Studio’s programming are able to experiment with diverse techniques and mediums alongside the studio’s staff. Additionally Make Studio’s artists are able to earn income through the sale of their art via Make Studio’s online shop where the artists receive 70% of the price of their sold work. Make Studio is striving for their artists to receive recognition for their art and talent by not only promoting the sale of their work but creating exhibit opportunities for their artists to share their creative works with the public. Through their exhibitions artists are able to not only display their talent but can help destigmatize how our society views individuals with disabilities.

Make Studio has a new exhibit coming up entitled Take A Look: Mine Ours Yours. The exhibit will run from September 9th-October 17th, 2013 at The Julio Fine Arts Gallery in the College Center of Loyola University, 4501 North Charles St. An Artists Talk and Reception will be held on Thursday September 12th from 5pm-7pm.

What Do You Think Baltimore?: Baltimore Think-A-Thon

On Friday May 24th an event is bringing together Baltimore artists, social activists, researchers, medical professionals, scientists, humanists, political representatives, and foundations to do some thinking. The Baltimore Think-A-Thon is an all day brainstorming event being held by the Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland, College Park and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Focusing on addressing both black infant mortality and rising AIDS/HIV rates in the city, along with other possible issues raised by participants, those in attendance will be coming together across occupations and communities to discuss past, present, and future ways to address these issues.

The Think-A-Thon comes out of recent studies that have found the collaboration between arts and science practitioners in problem solving can create innovative and effective interventions. The varying backgrounds of the thinkers involved from art to science, to politics encourages that they will bring different skills, perspectives, and thinking styles to the discussion. During the day artists will be working to create preliminary sketches of the ideas thought up by the group. The works created throughout the day will be used later in the “Baltimore Stories Project,” a larger community based project.

The intense day of problem solving, thinking and discussing will be taking place on Friday, May 24, 2013 from 9:00am-3:00pm and will be followed by a reception and a poster session. The Think-A-Thon is being held in the Westminster Hall, located at 519 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Young at Art: Wide Angle Youth Media and The 8th Annual Youth Media Festival

Since 2000, Wide Angle Youth Media has been providing opportunities for Baltimore City youth to develop leadership skills, gain media education, and access to media resources and tools. Each year the organization works with hundreds of Baltimore youth who learn techniques that range from design to photography to film and more. Wide Angle provides these resources and education through a variety of different after school and summer programs: Wide Angle’s Attendance and Design Team, Baltimore Speaks Out!, Mentoring Video Project, Youth Speaks Out!, Summer Media Camp, Special Programs, and their Youth Media Festival. While each of these programs provide a different topic focus, the content is guided by and the end outcome is controlled by the youth involved. Running through all of Wide Angle’s programs is a consistent and clear intent to assist Baltimore City Youth in telling their own story through their own words… or images.

Wide Angle Youth Media_Brandon 636px             Wide Angle works to go beyond just providing the education and the resources, but creates platforms for youth to share their art with the rest of the city. The 8th Annual Wide Angle Youth Media Festival will be holding its Opening Reception next Wednesday May 15th, 2013 from 5:00-8:00pm at the Creative Alliance. The Youth Media Festival showcases the art of over 200 youth from over 40 schools and 10 after school programs across Baltimore City. Using photography and film, this year’s Youth Media Festival features pieces created to challenge negative stereotypes of young people in Baltimore. During the Opening Reception, Wide Angle is collaborating with The Gandhi Brigade’s Just Us Youth Media Festival to screen videos by youth from across Maryland addressing the difficulties they experience and the positive things young people are doing in response. From 3:00pm-5:00pm on the 15th Wide Angle will be hosting free art activities at the Creative Alliance prior to the official Opening Reception. While the Festival’s Opening Reception is next Wednesday the Exhibition will run from May 15th until May 24th.

Individual Tickets for the festival are $10 and can be purchased here.
