Celebrate and support Baltimore’s artistic educational institutions this weekend with a fun-filled weekend of entertainment from the small stage to the big screen.
The Oscars Baltimore Celebration
Which film will take home the Oscar this year? Join Baltimore’s own Academy Award-winning cinematographer Errol Webber, in conjunction with HeidnSeek Entertainment, for the 2nd Annual Oscars Baltimore Celebration. Held at the historic Lord Baltimore Hotel, the red-carpet event promises an evening of glitz and glamour in support of the Film & Video Arts program at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Webber’s alma mater.
Pull out that dress or suit you’ve been dying to wear and celebrate the evening of film and talent with live music by DJ Jus-Spin, an open bar by Voga Wines, and delectable bites by Ra Sushi Baltimore, Tapas Adela, La Cakerie, and many more. Guests are invited to mingle with the Oscar-winner himself, smile for the camera on the step and repeat, and, of course, catch the live screening of the 86th Academy Awards. See you on the red carpet!

Baltimore School for the Arts Expressions 2014
Charm City’s brightest young artistic talent will showcase their abilities at Baltimore School for the Arts‘ annual Expressions celebration. Themed “The Places You’ll Go,” the weekend of festivities include three opportunities to support the budding artists. Patrons eager for a night on the town may attend the formal gala on Saturday evening, complete with a seated dinner, live auction, and student exhibitions of art, music, theatre, and dance. On Sunday, bring the whole family to one of two hour-long matinee performances of the students’ work. For those with a fully booked weekend, BSA will host Monday Night Expressions, where guests can enjoy performances with a cocktail in hand and a selection of lite-fare and desserts.
The annual fundraiser is chaired this year by two distinguished alums: Antonio Hart, a Grammy-nominated jazz musician and professor of jazz studies at Queens College, and Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., a critically acclaimed actor known for his roles in HBO’s Baltimore-based drama The Wire and, most recently, AMC’s The Walking Dead. Proceeds from the weekend of festivities benefit the BSA Foundation, supporting school programming, college scholarships, and student assistance.
