Courting Art Baltimore contest
Baltimore high school students were invited to submit paintings, drawings, or other two-dimensional works of art based on the theme, “We are Baltimore.” In addition to the five scholarship prizes, other prizes include gift certificates for art supplies. The artwork has been professionally reproduced for long-term display at the Baltimore City Eastside District Courthouse.
Courting Art Baltimore is led by the District Court of Maryland, Baltimore City, the Baltimore Bar Foundation, Inc., and the Bar Association of Baltimore City in partnership with Baltimore City Community College and Baltimore City Public Schools. The program is modeled on an award-winning program created by the Montgomery Bar Association in Pennsylvania that focuses on artwork by local senior citizens.
