One excellent way to experience the range and diversity of the arts and culture in Baltimore is the Bromo District Art Walk. The most recent event occurred on June 23 from 5-9 pm and included a map of venues and events including a variety of municipal, nonprofit, artist-run, and DIY spaces throughout the narrow north-south downtown area designated as a state arts district.
Bordered by Lombard at the south end and Read Street at the north, the Bromo Arts District is about four blocks wide and stretches between N. Greene Street and Park Avenue, with a cluster of cultural venues around Fayette and Baltimore and another between Franklin and W. Mulberry Street. Each venue was provided with maps and a list of exhibits, so that participants who visited one location can easily find them all, a great way to cross-pollinate disparate audiences for the arts.
We were thrilled that E. Brady Robinson was available to visit and photograph as many venues as possible on this summer evening, to provide a visual record of some of the highlights including: Maryland Art Place, the Black Genius Art Show, 410 Lofts, Current Space, Lexington Market, Nomü Nomü, and Le Mondo.
