Calls for Work: Artscape 2008: Visual Arts Exhibitions

Gary Kachadourian sent me this list of Artscape exhibitions which are seeking entries. If you haven't been to Artscape yet make a point of checking it out this year. One of the many reasons to risk getting HebB from entering the Baltimore City limits.

Applications are at www.artscape.org (click on join us/applications). If you have trouble downloading please email us at this address.

Artscape is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts, Inc. on behalf of the Baltimore Festival of the Arts, Inc., Mayor Sheila Dixon
