Offsides! Young Artists Tackle Sports

October 8-December 12, 2009

Each semester CADVC partners with several K-12 schools and/or after school programs from Baltimore City and area counties. Through our Educational Outreach Program our interns provide instruction in arts curriculum based on CADVC’s exhibition program. For the fall 2009 program CADVC interns taught video and photography classes at Baltimore School for the Arts in Baltimore City, and George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology and Lansdowne High School Academy: Arts & Communications in Baltimore County.

The participating classes from each school began the program with a visit to UMBC to tour CADVC’s exhibition MIXED SIGNALS: ARTISTS CONSIDER MASCULINITY IN SPORTS. During several weeks of studio work back in their classrooms, participating students created artwork in response to the Mixed Signals exhibition. Their artwork in photography and video resulted in their own exhibition, Offsides! Young Artists Tackle Sports. Offsides! will be exhibited in the Fine Arts Hallway Gallery over the next several months.

CADVC invites all high school participants, their parents, teachers and administrators to kick-off the exhibition with an opening reception and screening on Thursday, December 10th in the CADVC gallery from 5 to 7 pm. An award ceremony will commence at 5:30 pm.
