MAP 40th Anniversary Celebration

Maryland artists, and their supporters descended on Maryland Art Place to celebrate the nonprofit’s 40th year. The evening began with cocktails in the main gallery – hosted by local drag queens – and continued into the wee hours, with features that included a birthday cake, MAP’s “Merkin Dream Fashion Show,” and live music.
