Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Access to art is a fundamental human right, and expression through creation is a need as old as humanity itself. Art connects us to our own cultures and communities, resonates with our deepest selves, and introduces us to the beauty of new ideas and perspectives. Too often, art is treated as a luxury good and barred from public consumption behind lofty financial and cultural access barriers, but at Maryland Hall, we hope to introduce art early, foster lifelong artists, and produce accessible artistic opportunities for everyone in our surrounding area.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Jovenes Artistas

Jóvenes Artistas is an after school arts program that gives youth facing adversity a safe environment for self expression, confidence and motivation to work through life challenges. The program combines mentoring, arts experience and emotional support to allow students to express their personal stories in a creative way. Every few weeks, at the end of an arts session, the students have the opportunity to participate in a gallery exhibit or reception of their artwork.

Mission: Jóvenes Artistas is dedicated to providing mentorship, arts experiences, and exhibition opportunities in a safe environment for youth facing adversity.

In addition to hosting our Resident Companies and Community Partners' shows on our two indoor stages, Maryland Hall Presents is our annual season of in-house performances with incredible artists from around the world. Each year, we search for creative, innovative, and captivating performers to dazzle our audiences; in our 725-seat Main Theater, we offer tiered tickets and reserve free tickets for every performance to distribute via our partnership with the local libraries. Whenever possible, our artist contracts include opportunities for workshops, Q&A sessions, and school performances through our Outreach programs at local Title I schools and with at-risk youth in our after-school programs.

Each year, we host over 700 multidisciplinary art classes, designed and taught by incredible local artists in the Maryland Hall studio spaces. Classes are offered for different age groups - from pre-K through retirement! - and include dance, woodworking, glass fusion, pottery, painting, drawing, fiber arts, and many other mediums. In the past year, we opened our Media Arts Hub to the public, expanding opportunities to learn audio book narration, music production, graphic design, animation, and much, much more for all ages. Classes are tuition-based, and we offer a needs-based scholarship program for low-income participants.

Once an independent nonprofit, the award-winning Creating Communities program was integrated into Maryland Hall's Outreach umbrella in 2022 and continues to ignite passion for students of Title I schools. Creating Communities programs operate at 6 satellite locations across Annapolis; their free in-school and after-school clubs are designed to meet the needs and interests of each smaller population of students, including bilingual arts and crafts, STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) Robotics, and drumming circles.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Dedicated to Art for All, Maryland Hall is the regions cultural core, convening and engaging all peopleno matter age or backgroundin arts experiences that strengthen community. We believe that providing free access to incredible works of art and performances can inspire thoughts and action outside our campus, and that empowering all people to produce art for themselves helps affirm the inherent dignity and value of each person, regardless of age, race, gender, income, or ability.

We have a vast and diverse program, which includes art classes (from ballet to pottery, glass fusion to theatre), exhibitions (four free access galleries), performances (both produced in-house and also in collaboration with our local partners and Resident Companies), and a community outreach program, working with the underserved populations in our area (after-school programs, art education, mentoring, and much more). We also have a Media Arts Hub and even a radio station (CRAB Radio)!

Maryland Hall has been active in the community since 1980. We have a great staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, a great group of Teaching Artists, the best Resident Companies, and the most amazing art-loving community! Each year, we expand our capacity, introduce new offerings, and tweak our existing programs to better suit our community's interests and needs.

In the past year, we launched our Media Arts Hub, customized our Outreach programs to better suit school and student needs, hosted our full season of incredible performances and gallery exhibitions, and held over 700 classes and 60 summer camps for our art-loving community. As our staff continues to expand post-Covid and we adopt new strategic software tools in the coming year, we expect even greater achievements hosting, creating, and introducing art accessibly to the surrounding area!

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
