Cicada Parade-a Exhibition | Garden Party
Tuesday, September 21 • 5-9pm
@ Carroll Mansion
The “Cicada Parade-a” is a large-scale collaborative art project organized by Formstone Castle Collective that has been on outdoor display around Maryland all summer. Consisting of 170 plaster cicada sculptures uniquely transformed by 170 local artists, this will be your only chance to see them all together in one place: The Peale at Carroll Mansion, in downtown Baltimore.
The Cicada Parade-a represents an emergence from a long period of darkness to sing, make noise, and fall in love with the world again. More information about Cicada Parade-a can be found at www.cicada2021.com.
Cicada Parade-artists, sponsors and friends will also be hosting a garden party to wrap-up the project on Tuesday, September 21, from 5pm-9pm.

Upendo Performs Trees
Tuesday, September 21 • 5:30-6pm
presented by The Walters Art Museum
Upendo performs the musical composition Trees, a piece that is representative of growth and expansion of the Black mind from its root/core. From Updendo: “This song is a musical depiction of overcoming the struggles that Black people have faced throughout the world and that we still face today. This piece is dedicated to my longtime friend, collaborator, and supporter Amani Lewis who is a pillar in today’s and tomorrow’s art world.”
Upendo is a group led by Brandon Woody that includes his family and friends. Never run away from your deepest dreams and desires. Love the ones who surround you. Featured in this performance with Brandon Woody is Devron Dennis and Troy Long.
