Executive Director’s Letter 3/22/22

Would you like to be part of GBCA’s amazing team? We are currently on the lookout for a Marketing Manager who will be passionate about the mission, services, and constituents of GBCA and the role the arts and culture play in building healthy, vibrant, and successful communities. If you are interested, or know someone who would be great for this role, take a look at the position description here!

In addition to the museums mentioned last week, no list is complete without the Jewish Museum of Maryland and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of African American History and Culture. “Blacklist: The Hollywood Red Scare” opens this week at the Jewish Museum and its subject matter is apropos in our divisive political climate. The Lewis Museum has over 400 years of history in its permanent collection. “Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth.” is a traveling exhibition that profiles the revolutionary men—including Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, W.E.B Du Bois, and Kendrick Lamar—whose journeys have altered the history and culture of the country.

In other news, Single Carrot Theater, in collaboration with St. John’s Church, wants to hear from residents of Waverly and the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as anyone interested in their forthcoming project “Unmarked: Stories Told.” This project will commemorate 41 unmarked gravesites of African Americans from the latter half of the 19th century in the cemetery of St. John’s. Join them on Saturday, April 16, for a community conversation from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM at 3001 Old York Road, no reservations required.

And with this wonderful weather, who wouldn’t want to be outside? The Creative Alliance is presenting Go Fly a Kite Weekend, April 10 and 11 in Patterson Park.

Stay safe and healthy!
