The BIG Show was the very first Creative Alliance program that led to twenty-five years of artistic expression, community, cultivation of young minds, and so much joy. It all began in our original location in Fells Point in 1995 and, after a few moves, landed in the renovated Patterson Theater in 2003 to spur artistic development in Highlandtown. But, Creative Alliance is more than a location. It’s more than a building. It’s a force for positive change in Southeast Baltimore and beyond. It’s a community of artists and audiences that believe in the power of artistic expression. And so… The BIG Show Must Go On!
This event is all about our incredibly talented members! Each year we celebrate their talents, from those that have just joined Creative Alliance to those that have been with us since the beginning and are at the heart of our organization.
We invite you to join this live event to watch our members perform, see highlights from the member exhibition hung in our gallery (Yes! actually hung on our gallery walls), and celebrate 25 years of BIG Show exhibitions!
Even an evil virus won’t stop our members from creating and sharing their art with the world. This exhibition and show is designed to celebrate your artistic voice, creativity, and imagination!
Celebrate our talented Creative Alliance Members! Watch the wildest, wackiest show in B’more.
The BIG Show exhibition will be hung in our main gallery. Members’ will safely hand off their artwork to our staff, which will be hung in the main gallery. Artwork will be professionally photographed by us for additional inclusion in a digital exhibition. Creative Alliance will showcase all pieces included, promote those for sale, and highlight our included members throughout the duration of the exhibition. The BIG Show Exhibition Opening & Variety show will highlight artwork in the exhibition AND performances from our talented members!
