Maryland Art Place (MAP) is excited to announce Out of Order (OOO), MAP’s Annual Spring Benefit Exhibition & Silent Auction, on Friday, April 21, 2022, at 6 o’clock in the evening. This year marks the 26th year of OOO. The auction will be both a virtual and physical exhibition and will be held in the MAP building located at 218 West Saratoga Street, just within the Bromo Arts District. OOO is a highly celebrated exhibition-event, and a ‘one-night-only’ opportunity for patrons and collectors to acquire contemporary art at unbelievably low silent auction prices.
MAP is happy to continue KIDOOO, a youth version of Out of Order. KIDOOO was created as an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work in a major arts venue, extending MAP’s services to students in elementary, middle, and high school level art classes.
This year’s theme for OOO is Carnivàle, a nod to the 2003 HBO series that fictitiously followed the lives of carnival workers during the Dust Bowl. The origins of the “Carnival” proper are varied, though it is often thought of as a celebration of rebirth in nature. This spring we will do just that! Attendees of the event can expect light fare, an open bar, entertainment by DJ Aran Keating of Ridiculous Entertainment, tarot card readings, face painting, ‘drag queens in theme’, and more. And let’s not forget KIDOOO, our signature (free!) kids Out Of Order for children ages 5-16.Learn More
