BEST is so excited to announce a new collaboration in Baltimore, intended to promote education, outreach and support of the city’s vibrant community of artists and artisans. This program brings BEST together with Etsy and the Maryland Institute College of Art, specifically, their new graduate program designed for artists and crafters seeking deeper understanding of how to run their creative businesses. There will be some great free workshops associated with the program, and we'll be posting the full schedule here on the blog soon. We'll also be launching an informational site just for the I Heart Art program, which will be live early 2011.
To kick off I Heart Art: Baltimore, there will be a meet-n-greet party on MICA campus on November 19, from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. ET. Food, drink, music and a craft activity will be included in the festivities taking place in Brown Center’s Leidy Atrium, 1301. W. Mount Royal Ave.
Come meet Vanessa and Morgan from Etsy and members of the Baltimore Etsy Street Team. There will be a raffle full of goodies from BEST artists, MICA, and Etsy, so get there early! And don't forget to bring your business cards!
Please RSVP by calling 410-225-2219 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to see you at the party! For directions, please visit: www.mica.edu
