The Arc Baltimore’s Art in the Round Returns
Art in the Round returns! After two virtual years, The Arc Baltimore’s annual art exhibit and fund-raising auction showcasing the talent and artistry of people with developmental disabilities will be a live, in-person event this year.
2022’s Art in the Round, presented by Title Event Patron Scientific Plant Service, will be held this Friday, October 21, 7-10:30 p.m., at the Grand Lodge of Maryland, 302 International Circle, Hunt Valley, MD.
This year, Art in the Round promises to be better than ever. Featuring more than 60 pieces of art selected from nearly 200 submissions, the event will feature mobile bidding (made possible by Mobile Bidding Patron Whiting-Turner), a “Culture and Cuisine” silent auction basket (made possible by Auction Basket Patron Ten Oaks Homes), and a new “Bottles to Bordeaux” raffle to win a trip to France, along with heavy hors d’oeuvres and a specialty drink.
Other patrons include Total Wine & More (Vineyard/Brew Patron), The Mitre Box (Framing Patron), and Summit Financial (Centerpiece Patron).
“Dust off your party clothes because after two years as a virtual event, Art in the Round is back in person,” says Kathleen McNally Durkin, The Arc Baltimore’s Chief Executive Officer.
Proceeds from Art in the Round help The Arc Baltimore to support art classes, workshops, and other mission-related programs for people with developmental disabilities. Featured artists receive 60 percent of the winning bid for each piece of art sold. In addition, The Arc Baltimore presents a financial award to the artist whose work is chosen to be used for next year’s Art in the Round promotional poster.
More than 400 people are expected to attend this year’s Art in the Round. Tickets are $85 per person and $800 for a reserved table of 10. Tickets can be purchased online at www.thearcbaltimore.org.
