The Baltimore County Arts Guild, established in 2012, supports emerging and established artists and promotes creative experiences within our communities.
The Catonsville Arts & Entertainment District is the first state-designated Arts & Entertainment District in Baltimore County. Designated on July 1, 2020, the District is an initiative of Baltimore County Government and is managed by the Baltimore County Arts Guild. The Catonsville Arts & Entertainment District uses art as an economic driver to develop and promote community involvement, tourism and revitalization through tax-related incentives that attract artists, art organizations and creative enterprises.
The Art of Change
When children create, they express their hopes and aspirations and face their fears and worries. Released by the power of imagination, they unleash messages directly from their heart. They lighten the weighty words they draw with hearts and rainbows; they believe in the power of their own creative vision.
Like the Hillcrest Elementary School students, the Baltimore County Arts Guild, and the Catonsville Arts and Entertainment District believe in the extraordinary power of art to change the world. We are partnering with Hillcrest in these efforts and we invite you to join us in support of the school's ongoing creative response.
Funding will pay for; the costs of a permanent mural celebrating and honoring the students' commitment to equity and justice, producing and framing images of the original chalk artwork for the school hallways, and producing an online exhibit of the children's continuing creative efforts. For every dollar you donate, we will match it with our own dollars - until we reach our goal of $3,000.
