Maryland Art Place (MAP) eagerly anticipates the return of its Annual Spring Benefit Exhibition & Silent Auction, Out of Order (OOO) on Friday, April 22, 2022, at 6'oclock in the evening. This year Out of Order turns 25!! The auction will be both a virtual and physical exhibition and will be held in the MAP building located at 218 West Saratoga Street, just within the Bromo Arts District. Out of Order (OOO) is a highly celebrated exhibition-event, and a 'one-night-only' opportunity for patrons and collectors to acquire contemporary art at unbelievably low silent auction prices. All bidding will be virtual so make sure to register in advance and bring your device! Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.
This year's theme for OOO is Alice in WOOOnderland! Jump down the rabbit hole and join the celebration in support of local & regional artists. Tickets are $40 presale and $45 at the door. Tickets include light tastings and an open bar. All tickets also include free entry to KIDOOO, MAP's accompanying youth-driven OOO exhibition to be held on the 2nd floor of the MAP building the very same evening, and the basement after-party. Parents/guardians of KIDOOO may attend at a discounted price of $25 presale and $30 at the door.
Blue Dog BBQ will be catering the event with cornbread by Ale Mary's!. Beverages include donations from Union Craft Brewing, wine donated by Spirit's of Mt. Vernon & Blue Agave Restaurant + Tequileria, and a signature Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail provided by Dooby's! Drag Queens Jesus Vice 007 & Ervena Chloe will be passing out temporary tattoos and lollipops. While DJMikieLove hypes the madness and passes the vibe check. Then fall down the rabbit hole and find us in the basement where DJ Kotic Couture and The Barnyard Sharks will be performing. They slap! Document your evening and snap a photo with Pixilated photobooth with a backdrop courtesy of Baltimore-based artist, Laura Amussen.
MAP is happy to continue KIDOOO, a youth version of Out of Order. KIDOOO was created as an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work in a major arts venue, extending MAP's services to students in elementary, middle and high school level art classes. Sweets for KIDOOO were donated by Bonjour Bakery!
