Help turn Baltimore into a city-wide gallery!
For the time being, the doors to museums and galleries all over Baltimore and the world are closed. While we can visit them online for inspiration, why don’t we create our own galleries at home? Let’s create artwork inside to exhibit outside!

You might remember Samantha as the former Film Curator at Creative Alliance. But just because she’s moved to film production doesn’t mean that she hasn’t kept up with the latest and greatest in cinema! The news lately is sending her to a rare emotional state, so she is turning to her comfort films as well as exciting new independent releases to immerse herself in different, far-off worlds or time periods.

As we are sure you’re well aware, COVID-19 hits vulnerable communities the hardest. Our Latinx immigrant neighbors are no exception to the rule. While many of us can fall back on social safety nets, such as unemployment and government benefits, many members of the Latinx community are not supported due to immigration status; therefore, they are more vulnerable than ever before. To make matters worse, many families’ main source of income are jobs in the service industry, which has been hit hardest by the COVID-19 public health regulations.

Meet the Artesanas of Creative Alliance and find our more about the work each artist creates. Mexico, El Salvador, and Ecuador. They honor their Latin American heritage by demonstrating, sharing, and teaching traditional crafts. Prior to the new restrictions, the Artesanas had been working closely with our CIELO (Creative Immigrants and Entrepreneurs of Latin American Origin) and Education departments to provide after-school enrichment programs in area schools. They also shared their artistic traditions by offering community workshops at festivals, libraries, and universities. Artesanas also produced bilingual programs for all ages, including how to make piñatas, alebrije masks, papel picado, sugar skulls, Day of the Dead altars, corn husk art forms, paper flowers, and much more.

movie to watch recommended by Betty O'Hellno
Sun Mar 22

Well, Betty sure has been busy! She's cleaned every room in the house twice, listened to every true-crime podcast ever recorded, and has gone through at least 8.4 boxes of wine. What's a drag queen to do when she can't go outside or accost strangers for tips? Watch all of her favorite movies and explore some new ones!

Betty has an odd taste in film for sure - she loves raunchy pre-code classics, film noir, and old MGM musicals. She also has a dark side - she binge-watches crime documentaries and all that Mother Nature has blessed us with. Here are a few of her favorite (mostly free!) adventures she's been on while staying inside and dragging her butt on the carpet to keep busy. ​
