Baltimore Neighborhoods to be Illuminated with Art and Events During Combined Baltimore Book Festival and Light City Celebration

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA)  announced a reinvented Neighborhood Lights Program and the 11 recipients of the Neighborhood Lights Community Grant, which together will create an immersive arts experience that will illuminate the city during the combined Baltimore Book Festival and Light City celebration, now united under the theme of  Brilliant Baltimore, taking place November 1st -10th.

As the nation’s first and only combined celebration of art, literature, music, ideas and innovation, the 2019 Neighborhood Lights Program at Brilliant Baltimore will be a captivating community arts experience open to all city residents. The program will celebrate four artistic disciplines: culinary arts, literary arts, performing arts and visual arts, and 8 of the 22 Enoch Pratt Free Library branches will be activated with family friendly activities and programming including book readings, drone workshops, and silent discos.

As part of the festival, BOPA has awarded $5,000 each to 11 Baltimore City neighborhoods – Bromo Arts, Canton, Frankford, Fells Point, Irvington, Mount Clare, Oliver, Patterson Park, Promise Heights, Reservoir Hill, and Station North Arts District, to create and implement an arts experience that will expand the city’s shine during the 10 day celebration.
