Walpurgisnacht


Please join The Feminist Art Project - Baltimore for a fun afternoon celebrating Springtime and 'The Magical'!

Details below...




Historically, Walpurgisnacht takes place on the eve of May Day. On this night witches are said to ride to Blocksberg mountain in northern Germany, to celebrate the arrival of spring. Today the witch is often thought of as a symbol for an independent and strong woman. With this in mind, we invite you to experience a contemporary, feminist Walpurgisnacht-style celebration on Friday, May 2nd, 5:30-9:00 pm at City Arts Apartments. Come and dance off the winter blues, cast your ill-wishes into the ‘fire’, jump over a broomstick and make a seed bomb or two. BYOBroomstick and potluck dish, come in costume or make one there, but get ready for music, dancing and a touch of sorcery. City Arts is located at 440 East Oliver Street in Baltimore across from Greenmount Cemetery. This magical evening is brought to you by Cait Byrnes and The Feminist Art Project - Baltimore.

And, be sure to take a gander at our free, call for artists for the upcoming exhibition, Gutsy: Taking the Fear Factor Out of Feminism, curated by our Exhibitions Coordinator, Allison Gulick. The show will be up during Artscape at GALLERY CA, so make sure you submit!

Hope to see you soon!
