Handel Eugene's Blog — Happy Juneteenth! I wanted to collaborate with...


2010-2011 BDS Virtual High School Art Show
presented by Baltimore Design School

The Baltimore Design School CTE team collaborated to create an online showcase of the works created by their students during this pandemic school year. While the students were separated from one another and their teachers for a large chunk of this year, this website is an amalgamation of the collected works by our 10th, 11th, and 12th graders in the CTE courses and showcases the amazing talent and dedication of these scholars.



I Hope This Finds You…
ongoing through July 2021
presented by Single Carrot Theatre

I Hope This Finds You…, a new original collection of interactive, on demand, and live experiences from Single Carrot Theatre, is on sale now, with audiences loving the “mix-tape” feel of curating their own journey. Created by artists within the Single Carrot Ensemble, I Hope This Finds You… runs May – July 2021, with three chapters full of content.

I HOPE THIS FINDS YOU…joyous, wandering, hungry, alone, moving, awake!

This compilation of artistic experiences invites you into the minds and hearts of the Single Carrot ensemble as we bring you a multitude of short pieces reflecting on the last year and the future in front of us. From short films, to artful meal-kits, mock podcasts, interactive exercise class and audio walking tours, this collection is guaranteed to have many things for you to enjoy alone, with loved ones, or people you have been missing.

“The collection of short stories comprising “I Hope This Finds You…” are deeply engaging and very enjoyable. These performances explore the challenges of living through a serious pandemic. For me, the characters seemed to acknowledge, and validate, the intrapersonal impacts of isolation, helplessness, and emotional overload.”

Each chapter includes a mix of both On-Demand and Live Experiences. On-Demand experiences include various media (short film, audio podcasts, etc) to be enjoyed whenever you want. Live experiences require participation at specific times. You may purchase tickets in packages or you may purchase tickets for individual experiences.




In the Spirit of Liberation/Black Presence and Futures: Juneteenth Conversation
Tuesday, June 15 • 5:30-6pm
presented by The Walters Art Museum

Join artist and educator Zoë Charlton, Dana Moore, Chief Equity Officer for the City of Baltimore, and Keondra Prier, Mellon Initiative Project Manager at the Baltimore Museum of Art, in conversation about the present and future of Black liberation. The speakers navigate questions such as the constant uncertainty around freedom in the Black Experience and what freedom looks like today.

About the Speakers

Zoë Chalton has positioned her practice in the vein of social commentary. She makes large scale figure drawings, primarily of women adorned with culturally loaded objects and covered in dense collaged landscapes. She occasionally works in sculpture, animation, and collaborates with other artists to make installations and videos. She grew up in the military, primarily in northern Maine. Charlton negotiates nuanced and layered identities, both prescribed and self-determined as a Black woman, an artist, and an academic. She received an MFA degree from the University of Texas, Austin (1999) and a BFA degree from Florida State University (1993). In 2001, she attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Since 2003, she has been teaching full-time at American University (DC) and received tenure in 2009. She served as Chair of the Department of Art from 2015-2018 and is the first Black American tenured professor in the department. She holds a seat on the Maryland State Arts Council, is a board member of the Washington Project for the Art, and is a co-founder of ‘sindikit, a collaborative art initiative, with her colleague Tim Doud. They created the ‘sindikit project to engage their overlapping creative research in gender, sexuality, race, and the economies of things.

Dana P. Moore, Esquire is Baltimore’s first Chief Equity Officer. Appointed by Mayor Brandon M. Scott to the dual roles of Chief Equity Officer and Director of Baltimore’s Office of Equity and Civil Rights, Dana began serving in these roles in January 2021. Her mission is to establish frameworks within every City agency, board and commission that will assure compliance with Baltimore’s equity laws and mandates. She has a keen focus on helping all City employees carry out their vast and varied responsibilities with awareness of doing so through an equity lens.

Ms. Moore is also the first woman in Baltimore’s history to serve as the City’s Acting City Solicitor, a role she assumed in March 2020. She led the City’s legal response to the pandemic, helping convert the Baltimore Convention Center into a field hospital, establishing testing sites throughout the city and negotiating terms to convert hotels into respite sites. Prior to serving as Acting City Solicitor, Moore served as Deputy City Solicitor, a role in which she also made history as the first woman to serve in that capacity.

Prior to joining the City’s Law Department, Dana owned her own law firm that focused on providing legal services to small, women and minority owned businesses. She also served in an “Of Counsel” role at Baltimore-based Venable, LLP and, prior to that, was a full equity partner at Whiteford, Taylor & Preston.

Dana and her husband, Ralph E. Moore, Jr., live in Baltimore’s Charles Village Neighborhood. They have two daughters, one granddaughter, two grandsons, and a third grandson who will make his debut in August 2021.

Please note: This event is virtual and is available exclusively on our Facebook and YouTube pages. You don’t need an account on either platform to enjoy the program.

For five programs through the months of May to July, each artist finalist will be featured in a program exploring the artist’s individual journey as a creative, their evolving voice, and what the opportunity of the Sondheim Prize and its visibility means to their art practice.

The 2021 Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize Finalists are Jonathan Monaghan, Lavar Munroe, Hoesy Corona, Tsedaye Makonnen, and Hae Won Sohn. The prestigious $25,000 Sondheim Prize is awarded to assist in furthering the career of a visual artist or visual artist collaborators living and working in the Greater Baltimore region. The Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize exhibition is on view at the Walters Art Museum from Thursday, May 27, through Sunday, July 18, 2021.

About the Artist

Hoesy Corona (Baltimore, MD) is an emerging and uncategorized queer Mexican artist living and working in the United States. He creates narratives centering marginalized individuals in society by exploring otherworldly aesthetics through a process-based practice. His work is executed across a variety of media while considering what it means to be a queer Latinx immigrant in a place where there are few. He choreographs large scale performances and installations that oftentimes silently confront and delight viewers with some of the most pressing issues of our time. Reoccurring themes of queerness, race/class/gender, nature, isolation, celebration, and the climate crisis are present throughout his work. His colorful sculptural works fitted to the human body have been presented at The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Transformer DC, The Baltimore Museum of Art, the Walters Art Museum, Gilcrease Museum, and The Reach at The Kennedy Center. Recent honors include The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore Artist Travel Prize, a Tulsa Artist Fellowship, a Merriweather District Artist in Residence, a Halcyon Arts Lab Fellowship, a Ruby’s Artist Grant, a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award, and an Andy Warhol Foundation Grit Fund Grant.



The 2021 Dambach Award Ceremony Celebrating D. Watkins
Thursday, June 17 • 7-8:15pm
presented by CityLit Project

CityLit Project will honor educator and New York Times bestselling author D. Watkins with the 2021 Chic Dambach Award for Service to the Literary Arts on Thursday, June 17, 2021, from 7 to 8:15 pm EDT as a virtual event. The long-awaited celebration of D. Watkins as an exemplary literary citizen marks the end of a noteworthy but challenging year for CityLit. This celebration, which also serves as a fundraiser, regards Watkins as a champion of the literary arts. Most importantly, it recognizes his ongoing commitment to Baltimore youth.

The special occasion showcases musical guest artists J Pope and the HearNow and a special guest appearance by esteemed author Jason Reynolds, the Library of Congress Children’s Poet Laureate, among other notable guests. A special presentation from Watkins will be one of the evening’s highlights, Writing Like You: Staying True to Your Own Voice.

D. Watkins is Editor at Large for Salon. His work has been published in the New York Times, New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, among others. He is a college lecturer at the University of Baltimore and Arts and Social Justice Visiting Professor at Johns Hopkins University. He is the recipient of numerous awards including, BMe Genius Grant, and the Maryland Library Association William Wilson Maryland Author Award. He has lectured at countless universities and events around the world.

“With the success of our month-long virtual CityLit Festival, and receiving national recognition from both  the National Endowment for the Arts and Amazon Literary Partnership, we couldn’t think of a better way to end this momentous year by honoring D. Watkins, whose impact on our youth will be felt for years to come,” says CityLit’s executive director Carla Du Pree.

The Dambach Award for Service to the Literary Arts is named in honor of CityLit founding Board Chair Charles (Chic) Dambach, and his commitment to supporting the literary community for over 16 years. His highly successful international career includes his work as a tenacious advocate and mediator. He was nominated for the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, and was recently declared a Knight of the National Order of Mali.

Watkins is the author of the New York Times bestsellers “The Beast Side: Living (and Dying) While Black in America,” “The Cook Up: A Crack Rock Memoir,” and “We Speak for Ourselves: A Word from Forgotten Black America,” which was also the 2020 One Book Baltimore author, where Baltimore City’s  7th and 8th graders, their families, and community members made meaningful connections through literature. Watkins’ forthcoming memoir “Where Tomorrows Aren’t Promised”, co-written with Carmelo Anthony, will be released this fall.

Educator Jeffrey Lordi, who has taught two of Watkins’ books says, “each time students connected and engaged more with his (work), more than any other (books) we’d read. I find D brings the voice of Baltimore to the classroom, a voice that has mostly been stifled in those settings. His books allowed us to engage in deep discussions about our city, the structures that run it … His books and words inspire my students to think about the role that they will play — not just as students, but as leaders of their own stories.”

The Dambach award ceremony is CityLit’s only fundraiser, an online event with tickets ranging from $10 to $100 and up. Student admission is free. To register, go to A Zoom link will be sent upon registration.

2021 Call for Proposals for Community-Based Archives
deadline for registration request June 25
sponsored by the Mellon Foundation

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation invites community-based archives in the United States and its territories to submit applications for its 2021 Call for Proposals to Community-Based Archives.

These grants will provide support to archives in one or more of the following areas of need:

Operational costs, including staff, space, and utilities.

Collections care, including the acquisition of new materials, physical and digital storage fees, and access and preservation efforts.

Programming activities, including events, exhibitions, and publications.

Activation and advocacy efforts, including resident community activist/archivist positions, ethical preservation of social media, and increased community use of the archive.

This funding opportunity is overseen by the Foundation’s Public Knowledge program.


For the purposes of this call, community-based archives are defined as collections of materials gathered, collected, and shared primarily by members of a marginalized community to document their collective histories. These archives play an important role in combating what UCLA Assistant Professor of Archival Studies Michelle Caswell calls the “symbolic annihilation” of marginalized communities from mainstream memory institutions, and are essential to the creation of a more inclusive and polyvocal American story.

Over the course of two open calls for proposals in direct support of these archives, the Foundation has awarded almost $3 million to over 30 organizations. This year, the Foundation plans to make $1.5 million in grants for a third and final cohort of archives through this program, with preference given to those organizations planning to activate their archive through community-led advocacy and activation efforts.


The 2021 Call for Proposals to Community-Based Archives is now open. Through this program, direct support will be provided to community-based archives that represent and serve communities marginalized due to oppression based on race, ethnicity, national origin, class, gender, sexuality, religion, or ability. This year, the Foundation plans to prioritize those applications that are based in community advocacy and archive activation efforts.

Applications will be due by Friday, July 2, 2021 at 9:00am ET. They will then be evaluated by a panel that includes Foundation staff, external reviewers, and members of the 2019 cohort. All applicants will be notified of the status of their submission by Friday, September 3, 2021. If selected, additional information and materials will be requested in a final proposal to be reviewed and approved by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Awards will range from $50,000 to $100,000 for grants of two years in length. Grant periods would begin January 1, 2022 and end on December 31, 2023. The Foundation plans to convene representatives from the awarded archives both in person and online over the course of the grant term to build a cohort of organizations that would help and learn from each other.

All interested applicants must first complete a registration request by June 25, 2021 at 9:00am ET.  After Foundation staff have processed the registration request, eligible applicants will gain access to the application form in the Foundation’s Fluxx grantee portal.  On the form, applicants will be asked to provide information about their organization and its archival collections, as well as the following documents in support of the project:

A project proposal of 1000-1500 words

Biographical sketches/CVs for the organization’s executive director and the project lead(s)

A recent Form 990 or IRS determination letter

Annual operating budgets for 2019 and 2020

A board list

Visit our applicant resources for further details on how to apply.  If you would like to sign up for email alerts, or if you have any questions about this CFP, please contact program staff at [email protected].




Journalism Fellowships for Curators | Call for Submissions
deadline June 30
sponsored by Hyperallergic

For the last few years, we’ve been hosting journalism fellowships for curators with the support of the Emily H. Tremaine Foundation. From the important work of Laura Raicovich on the culture of museums to Rea McNamara’s investigations of art and feminisms online, we’re proud of the work we’ve produced in collaboration with our fellows.

This time we’ve decided to do something different, particularly in light of the pandemic restrictions still in place in most of the world. We know curators are finding it hard to find the resources to do their own work, so we’re inviting curators to submit short proposals for projects they are currently working on for a $5,000 grant that will help you in your research, while offering the public a window into your process.

We’re interested in demystifying the process of curation. We’re eager to help curators explore new ideas. And we’re excited to share insights from curators with a general audience outside of traditional institutional spaces. If those sync up with your goals, then this opportunity might be a good fit for you.

Each applicant should submit a 250-word proposal or project description explaining their area of research, why it’s important now, and how they would like to present their work to the public.

Each Fellow will be expected to contribute two articles to Hyperallergic, participate in a recorded online event, and produce an email exhibition based on some of the material from your research, all within the one-month fellowship period.

What’s an email exhibition, you ask?

Good question. Like the evolution of mail art, which has since incorporated email and other epistolary forms of communication, an email exhibition is an exhibition that is shared via email — straightforward so far, no? We’re interested in curators who are eager to take on this more experimental form. Perhaps you will curate a stash of never-before-seen images from a newly discovered sketchbook, or archival documents that illuminate a little-known period in an artist’s life, or maybe you’ll bring together a combination of recent and historical works according to an exciting new concept. Whatever it is, we’re interested in helping you make it possible and sending it to our 150,000 subscribers.

Emerging curators are welcome but we want you to be upfront about your limitations, what you plan to exhibit, and how the fellowship will help you realize your goals. Proposals with concrete plans for exhibition will be given priority, and no it doesn’t matter if it is a well-known museum or grassroots art space, as both will be treated equally.

Please email [email protected] with your 250 word proposal in the body of the email, along with 2–4 relevant images or files (sound files, jpegs, videos, etc.), and relevant links, including to your website and social accounts. Attachments should not exceed 25MB. Include a resume or CV, and please outline any potential conflicts of interest, which include any financial or personal relationships you might have with those you plan to exhibit or the organizations you plan to work with.

We hope to accept a wide range of fellows, both experienced and just starting out, and plan to host one fellow a month from August to December. We do expect professionalism in your correspondence and a clear vision for your research and work and encourage people who can work independently to apply. If there are any limitations on the use of images for your project, such as permissions from major archives or reproduction fees, please indicate that in your proposal as such factors may limit the feasibility of an email exhibition. Make sure to also let us know which months you would like to do the fellowship and which months are absolutely not possible with your schedule.

Deadline for proposals is June 30, 2021 at 12pm EDT.
