Meaning and Material: Four May Art Exhibits

On Saturday April 27, the Creative Alliance hosted their signature gala event: The Marquee Ball. It’s Baltimore’s costume party to end all costume parties, where artists often spend weeks creating looks that are beautiful, bizarre, and clever. It’s a massive fundraiser that includes live music, dancing, and all kinds of interactive performances. This year’s theme was Illusion, harkening back to the “Golden Age of Magic at the turn of the 20th Century, when the artistry of stage performers, magicians, and illusionists filled us with shock and awe!”

In addition to supernatural cocktails, guests were treated with: Rufus Roundtree & Da B’more Brass FactoryIllusionist Dakota PriestBellydance from NaimahJuggling from Saymo Saymo, escape artists Dessie Delaplaine & Ri Dickulous, The EncounterBaltimore Hoop Love, and Tarot by Soleil.

A reminder, in case you need one: Supporting our local art spaces is magical!

Congratulations to Golden Formstone Award winner Todd Marcus and 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Dr. Leslie King-Hammond.
