It’s Breakfast Time! We’re bringing back the nostalgia of childhood morning breakfast. Do you recall spending your mornings pursuing the back of a cereal box, or beating your siblings to that special prize hiding inside, all while you skimmed that week’s installment of your favorite cartoon? Zekes’ Coffee Shop and Maryland Art Place (MAP) are seeking artworks related to morning cartoons, cereal boxes and anything related to the nostalgia of breakfast as a kid. Want you to create your own imaginative cereal box cover?? That’s cool too - just make it funny! Works related to breakfast foods and beverages are also welcomed.

The reception will be held at Zeke’s Coffee located at 4719 Harford Road on Saturday, January 21 between 10 am and 12 pm. This reception is breakfast themed, jamies are encouraged.
