Love the arts? There are plenty of cultural activities taking place online this month. There is no need to leave the house. The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) announces that Free Fall Baltimore presented by BGE and Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC), is taking place as a hybrid of virtual and small in-person events.
The annual celebration, held each October in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month, showcases the importance of the arts with free concerts, dance and theater performances, festivals, lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, and special events. Free Fall Baltimore is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Baltimore’s vibrant arts scene. By providing a schedule of mostly virtual programming, Free Fall Baltimore maintains public health and safety while expanding its virtual reach beyond Baltimore City.
We’ll be the first to admit: Checking the events listings is a bit weird these days. Eventbrite has a whole section just for virtual events. Scroll through Facebook, and you’re bound to stumble on a big concert that was scheduled for this time and just hasn’t taken down its page, or the word “cancelled.” And that’s not even to mention all the instructions that come with a gathering during a pandemic.
Yet, slowly, in the last few weeks, probably by some combination of the city raising the limit on gatherings and the rush to get some time in before winter, some more events have started to pop back up. And, of course, virtual events go on, as they might very well into the future even after the vaccine. So, after six months, we’re re-introducing the weekend events calendar — with 10 picks that look particularly interesting, and a reminder to be careful and practice distancing and masking. As with everything in 2020, we’ll keep it this way for now, unless things change again.
