An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until September 8, 2019
Be a part of the creative process at the Fifth Annual Little Italy Baltimore Madonnari Arts Festival as artists give vision and voice to this year’s theme, Courage. Whether expressing the courage to stand up for our convictions, the courage to create, the courage to explore new worlds, the courage to speak out for those who have no voice, or honoring those among us or have come before us who have demonstrated or personify courage, our artists will define in personal and universal terms that much honored virtue.
This year’s Festival is proudly presented by the Little Italy Neighborhood Association and the Baltimore Jazz Alliance and is supported in part by grants from the Maryland State Arts Council, msac.org, and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts, promotionandarts.org. In addition to the exquisite street paintings to be located on S. High Street between Pratt Street and Eastern Avenue, there will be a tented soundstage on Fawn Street between S. High Street and Albemarle Street with continuous live music by Baltimore’s exceptional performing artists. Artists and artisans will also open shop at our pop up art market to be located on Stiles Street between S. High Street and Albemarle Street. Bring your emerging artists to the Children’s Chalk Center, enjoy our street performers and al fresco dining. and meet the artists as they create their street paintings.
