Here at The Arc Baltimore, we believe strongly in the value of “meaningful relationships” that it is written into our mission statement. Those we support need practical support to develop and maintain these friendships.
Your contribution directly funds the vital services that The Arc Baltimore provides to support adults with developmental disabilities at home, at work, and in their neighborhoods. Please give your most generous gift – or set up a personal fundraising page so all people with disabilities can experience the friendships that make life richer.
Before each Art in the Round, a group of esteemed members of the Baltimore art community participate in our Curator Night event, where they discuss the piece of art they personally selected for Art in the Round. They also share what is happening at their respective institutions and engage in dialogue on the intersection of disability and art. Tune in on October 4 at 7 p.m. to view the event on our website, YouTube, and Facebook.

MEET THE ARTISTS
At each Art in the Round event, we identify several artists whose work has captivated attendees year after year, and we feature them in artist profile videos that provides an in-depth look into their creative process and stories behind some of their more memorable pieces.
Some 350 artists and guests enjoyed a return to Art in the Round in person with absolute enthusiasm. Bidding on art was competitive and the live auction saw a top bid of $2,000. If you missed the event, the virtual gallery is still open for viewing. Live pledges and gifts were then made to the Fund the Mission appeal adding to the advance online contributions for a total just shy of $60,000. Help us reach our final goal of $65,000 by donating below!
The evening was capped by the drawing for the winner of the Bottles to Bordeaux raffle who will enjoy an exclusive experience at a chateau in Bordeaux, France. Check out the event photos that convey the excitement of the artists and the enjoyment of all who attended.
Enormous thanks to event co-chairs Laura Ward and Jen Brandenburg, and the committee members and faithful volunteers who made the night a success. We are also grateful for the generosity of our title sponsor, Scientific Plant Service, and all the patrons and sponsors who contributed.
