Baker Artist Awards Celebration

Scads of art lovers descended on the Baltimore Museum of Art to celebrate this year’s winners of Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance’s Baker Artists Awards.

After hearing which Baltimore area artists would be receiving a total of $90,000, guests had a chance to congratulate them in person at a free reception in the lower lobby.
