SUBMISSION WINDOW: Friday, June 19 – Monday, July 6
VIRTUAL AUCTION: Opens Thursday, July 16 – Closes Thursday, July 23rd
As a result of the pandemic sweeping our nation, Maryland Art Place (MAP), like so many, has been forced to rethink, retool and re-imagine its programming. This year marks the 23rd year of Maryland Art Place’s (MAP’s) signature exhibition event “Out of Order” (OOO). MAP is very excited to announce that it will still be holding Out of Order, only this year it’s virtual! MAP will launch the auction and make it available to anyone on an electronic device for free!
As one of Baltimore’s longest-standing consecutive contemporary exhibitions, Out of Order has successfully continued to stay relevant and fun. Last year (2019) 289 artists participated in OOO and MAP sold 133 works of art. MAP aims to exceed these figures this year due to the event’s virtual reach, and also because this year OOO is open for bidding for an entire week as opposed to one evening. Bidders can expect text messages when they have been outbid and may bid from their homes, offices, vacations while perusing hundreds of works of art from the many talented artists throughout the state and region.
MAP has gone from 205 participating artists and 56 sales in 2016 to 289 artists and 133 sales in 2019. Income-generating opportunities for artists are so critical, especially right now. Participate today!
The OOO Online auction opens Thursday, July 16, running one full week through Thursday, July 23rd, 2020. The AUCTION LINK will go ‘LIVE’ Thursday, July 16th via MAP’s website and various social media outlets and newsletters. All bids must be submitted no later than 10pm on July 23rd. The EVENT SITE and LINK will go ‘LIVE’ soon!
