A capital place for the arts

The arts are well-represented across Anne Arundel County, which stretches between the I-95 corridor and the Cheseapeake Bay, from Glen Burnie in the north to Crofton in the south.

Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park sports a 750-seat theater and concert hall and a more intimate space that seats 120, as well as gallery space, ceramics lab, dance studios, music room, maker-space and classrooms.  

In Maryland’s capital, Annapolis, you’ll find galleries, performance venues, and special arts events in the Arts District, which stretches along West Street one block from Church Circle all the way to Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, an arts campus offering a broad range of classes, galleries, and a large theater space featuring an array of national acts as well as local opera, ballet, and classical music offerings. Other Annapolis events and performance may be found at Visit Annapolis’ site.

You can get your visual art fix from excellent organizations like the Mitchell Gallery at St. John;s College, Maryland Federation of Art, and Annapolis Film Festival. And, water and sunshine blend with music for a tempting array of summer concerts in towns throughout the county, including Londontowne, Pasadena, Gambrills, and many in Annapolis.

And of course, every summer Let Merriment Abound at the annual Renaissance Festival in Crownsville!
