Maryland Art Place (MAP) is excited to restore the Curators’ Incubator program, slated to open May of 2018. MAP established Curators’ Incubator in 2004 as a platform for aspiring curators to grow. In this program, MAP’s gallery is made available to an emerging curator or curatorial team to develop a creative, curatorial vision as part of a 9-month mentored partnership initiative. The program provides approximately 2,200 square feet of gallery space in downtown Baltimore, located within the Bromo Arts District.
MAP is open to exhibition proposals of all types. Curators’ proposals will be juried by MAP’s staff and Programming Advisory Committee in October. After the initial review of proposals, up to five curators will be selected for advancement to phase two of the application process where they will be required to formally present and expand upon their proposal to the PAC in November.

The University of Delaware: Dream Big Gala, Art and Fashion
The Dream Big campaign will shine a spotlight on Delaware’s rich supply of talented local artist and highlights another form of art that does not always get its proper recognition in Delaware: Fashion.

In conjunction with the University of Delaware’s school of fashion & art, we will feature the “Dream Big” Gala which will be a celebration of art, fashion, and scholarship in the heart of our community. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the University of Delaware’s art and fashion student organizations for additional education and enrichment opportunities. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will support artistic activities in the City of Wilmington by donating to several organizations that serve low-income families: Northeast Church of Christ, First State Church of Christ, and TeenSharp. The event is Oct 7, 2017.
