Rouse Gallery, MICA Place, 814 N. Collington Ave
Art isn't just what we hang on the walls, it is the lives we all live trying to make it. Community artist Aaron Goldman will be living in the Rouse Gallery as an ongoing performance in reaction to student housing issues by Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The opening (housewarming) will be held on Sunday, July 3rd. The gallery will host an open event every Sunday in July from 3 - 6pm or is open by appointment (send a message if you would like to come hang out!). Due to the gracious opportunity to conduct this living performance in the gallery all summer, the money that would have been spent on rent is being donated to grassroots organizations working to address homelessness in East Baltimore.

In 2015, NPAF in association with Dry Tortugas National Park established the most exciting Artist-in-Residence opportunity ever available, in the world. Dry Tortugas National Park at Loggerhead Key is like no other little paradise in the world. Because of its fragile ecosystem, very few people are allowed to step foot -- much less live there -- as an Artist-in-Residence. This is an unique opportunity for a wide range of visual artists, filmmakers, performers and dancers who want to get serious work done without disruptions. More information here.
The membership manager is responsible for acquiring, growing, and maintaining a robust membership base for Open Works, a 34,000 sq. ft. maker space located in central Baltimore. Open Works will begin operations in September 2016. Access will be available to the public through memberships. See the job post here.
Deadline: June 30
