Vibrant Arts & Cultural Community

Recognized as a thriving cultural center for Maryland, Towson University is committed to enhancing access to the arts.

Creative Alliance on Art to Dine
Since 2013, The College of Fine Arts and Communication has worked with Creative Alliance on Art to Dine, a series of events highlighting Baltimore's vivacious art scene. Most recently, this included working with Artesanas Mexicanas, a group of women who are native to Mexico and are residents of Southeast Baltimore to provide piñata making workshops at Creative Alliance. 

TU is working with 20 museums, community organizations, schools, and nonprofits to enhance Greater Baltimore's arts and cultural community. We partner on several arts-based initiatives and programs from both a programming perspective and an educational perspective to:

  • Support access to visual and performing arts, especially in underserved communities
  • Address student learning and social development challenges through the arts
  • Provide a venue for emerging artists to develop business skills and entrepreneurship support
  • Promote positive body images in schoolchildren through dance and interpretation
  • Host creative programs and performances at our state-of-the-art theatre venues, galleries, and performance spaces
