It was, indeed, a good news day for Bmore and its three important arts districts! Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made the announcement of support coming their way Tuesday morning at the Creative Alliance (CA), located in the heart of Highlandtown.
Officials from the European Union National Institutes for Culture, along with their counterparts from Washington, D.C. also were present. ArtPlace America is awarding a $200,000 grant to the city’s three Arts Entertainment Districts: to wit; the project for Bromo Tower; Highlandtown, where Creative Alliance is based; and Station North. The welcomed message was divulged by the Mayor to the representatives of the A&E Districts, who were having their annual statewide meeting at the CA. The Maryland State Arts Council hosted the event. The three locally-based arts districts come under the umbrella of the City’s Office of Promotion & the Arts.
