Out of Order

Friday, APRIL 5, 2013

Maryland Art Place is thrilled to announce the return of Out of Order, the much-anticipated Do-It-Yourself spring benefit exhibition, silent auction and party!

One of Baltimore’s most celebrated annual events, Out of Order is a one-night-only opportunity for collectors to acquire contemporary art at outrageously low silent auction prices. Both emerging and established artists present their original work in a first-come-first-served salon style exhibition, covering the walls of MAP’s Power Plant Live! gallery space. Artists and art lovers mix and mingle while enjoying music, wine, beer, signature cocktail and lite fare. Last year, nearly 300 artists took part in the silent auction exhibition and hundreds of guests gathered for the event! Proceeds from art sales are split mutually between MAP and the artist. Revenue generated at Out of Order directly supports MAP’s programming throughout the year.

MAP is also excited to partner again this year with the Art Connection in the Capital Region, offering artists the opportunity to donate their unsold work to a valuable organization that places donated works in the facilities of not-for-profit social service organizations:

IMPRINT: For the second year, MAP will launch an amazing opportunity for one, select artist to be part of the IMPRINT artwork replication program. Launched through Out of Order this program offers prominent promotion of a singularly, selected artwork. Editioned replications will be sold throughout 2013 and the selected artist will be highlighted on the MAP website. Submissions will be accepted through March 1 with the selected work featured for sale at the April 5th event.
