Out of Order Online Call for Entry / Calls & Submissions
Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to announce its 2nd Virtual Out of Order exhibition event and very first, virtual KIDOOO This year marks the 24th year of MAP’s signature, spring, art auction. Using a virtual platform, Out of Order will be 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 (2020) Out of Order expanded to include artists from outside the state with over 300 participating artists. This year we’re excited to announce the return of KIDOOO! KIDOOO was created as an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work within a major arts venue, expanding MAP’s services to students in elementary, middle, and high school level arts classes. To participate in the exhibition, artists must be ages six-sixteen.
This year OOO is open for bidding for an entire week as opposed to one evening. Participants may bid from their homes, offices, or vacations while perusing hundreds of works of art from the many talented artists throughout the state and region. You may text to bid and can expect text messages when you have been outbid throughout the auction.
In addition to the week-long online exhibition and auction, there will also be a ticketed sneak preview event on Friday, May 7 at 5 pm! This ticketed preview event will be held in conjunction with MAP’s 40th Anniversary campaign.
