The Contemporary’s inaugural Artist Retreat took place at the Pearlstone Center from Thursday, August 4th to Sunday, August 7th. The Contemporary convened 50 Baltimore artists and 25 national arts consultants including critics, curators, gallerists, and collectors, for three days of intensive professional development, community building, and networking. The retreat was free for all selected artists and included transportation to and from the center, lodging, and all meals.
This retreat supported The Contemporary’s mission by affirming that artists are invaluable to society and are worthy of professional, scholarly, and financial investment. It was generously supported by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation and Surdna Foundation.
