Out Of Order - This Weekend at MD Art Place!

APRIL 9, 2010

Saturday, April 9, 8 – 11pm

Maryland Art Place is thrilled to announce the return of Out of Order, the much-anticipated Do-It-Yourself spring benefit exhibition, silent auction and party!

A hugely popular Baltimore event, Out of Order is a one-night-only opportunity for collectors to acquire contemporary art at silent auction prices. Both emerging and experienced artists present their original work in a wide range of media with minimum bids set from $1 to $800. On event night, art makers and art lovers mix and mingle while enjoying the pleasures of music, food, wine and beer. Last year, a record-breaking 432 artists took part and hundreds of guests attended Out of Order.

Proceeds from the art sales are split 50/50 between MAP and the artist. Event revenue goes directly to support MAP’s programming throughout the year. This April, artists will have the chance to donate their unsold work to the Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR), a valuable organization that places donated works in the facilities of not-for-profit social service organizations. To learn more about ACCR’s role in promoting contemporary art while improving the lives of individuals, visit:
