Working For a Living

Work can crush us. Work can provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment.  For some, work is an all-consuming passion.  For others, it is drudgery necessary for survival.  Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) seeks artists in any medium who capture any aspect of what “work” means to them, including their own working practices or those of fellow artists. Most of all, MFA seeks images of the emotional impact of work, in every possible way, on the worker.  The selected images will be on view in the online Curve Gallery from April 15 – May 31, 2018.

Deadline: March 14, 2019

A Language More Powerful than Words

Students love this interactive approach to literature, studying music and demonstrate movement in order to draw inferences, synthesize meaning, and analyze character, mood, and plot. Students learn dance pieces from BTM’s repertoire, including “Pirates of the Chesapeake,” “Medieval Festival,” “Beauty and the Beast,” among others in this dance residency.


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
