Opening reception was AMAZING!

Check out photos of the opening celebration that took place on September 6, 2013 at the MICA Graduate Studio Center. What an amazing opening with over 400 attendees! “CONGREGATE” brought so many people from all walks of life together. It was incredible seeing the excitement and enthusiasm of all the visitors! The artwork stimulated so much conversation about the meaning and importance of faith and community. We are excited about the new relationships that have been a result of this collaboration, it does not end here.

Congratulations to all participating artists in residence, congregations and CONGREGATE project team. THANK YOU for coming and supporting this ambitious project! The show is up until September 25 with additional upcoming programs. Stay tuned by visiting our website for program updates at www.congregatebaltimore.com.

CONGREGATE Kickstarter has been funded!

Dear supporters,

Thanks to you, we have raised $5,050 to support the “CONGREGATE art + faith + community” exhibition at the Maryland Institute College of Art. With these funds, we will print catalogs and other publications, create an amazing gallery installation, order food, and support our programs!

Thank you from the participating congregations, “CONGREGATE” artists in residence, MICA Curatorial Practice professors and the M.F.A in Curatorial Practice class of 2014. All of this hard work for the past year has been worth it. We are so grateful and we have learned to have faith in art and our Baltimore community in order to create a more inclusive arts district in Station North. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Your goodies and rewards will be delivered at the end of September or early October. We will continue to post updates on our Kickstarter, so stay tuned!

 

Mark your calendars!
