Bill of Rights 225th Anniversary – The First Amendment

This year marks the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights. This document laid the foundation for American identity and forever changed the way governments viewed their citizens. This December, Carroll Museums will curate a house-wide art exhibit to celebrate the Bill of Rights’ 225th anniversary and in particular explore the First Amendment. We invite artists to submit 2D and 3D work that draws on this theme and spurs thoughtful discussion about the First Amendment, its influence on our country’s past development, and how it is active in our lives today.

Submission Deadline is Thursday, Nov 17, 2016. Selections will be announced Dec 1, 2016. The Show will run Dec 15, 2016 – Jan 15, 2017. Click here to access the application. This is a juried exhibition. There is a $15 submission fee.


BaltiMADE at the Carroll Mansion

This coming February 2017, Carroll Museums will host its first BaltiMADE Exhibition. Focused on the breadth and depth of local Baltimore creators, this design exhibition will feature 2-D and 3-D art, hand-made furniture, furnishings, apparel and accessories that are defining the growing Maker Movement and resurgence of quality goods crafted locally. This house-wide exhibition will be held at the historic Carroll Mansion, itself a testament to the ingenuity, chutzpah and growth of Baltimore as a creative center in the United States. The exhibition will provide space to display works of art and product as well as pop-up shops, demonstrations, workshops, and special “maker” events.

Submission Deadline is Saturday, Dec 3, 2016. Selections will be announced Dec 12, 2016. The Exhibition will run from the end of January through Feb 28, 2017. Click here to access the submission form. This is a juried exhibition. There is a $25 fee to apply. All mediums are welcome within the eligibility guidelines listed on the submission form.
