Calling all Elementary, Middle School, and High School level artists!

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to announce its 2nd Virtual Out of Order exhibition event and 1st Virtual KIDOOO. MAP is happy to continue KIDOOO, a youth version of Out of Order, MAP annual art auction! KIDOOO was created as an opportunity for young artists to exhibit their work with a major arts venue, expanding MAP’s services to students in elementary, middle, and high school level arts classes. To participate in the exhibition, artists must be ages six-sixteen.

The opening of KIDOOO will take place in tandem with MAP’s annual Out of Order. This year OOO and KIDOOO are open for bidding for an entire week as opposed to one evening. Bidders can expect text messages when they have been outbid and may bid from their homes, offices, or vacations while perusing hundreds of works of art from the many talented artists throughout the state and region.

In addition to the week-long online exhibition and auction, there will also be a ticketed sneak preview event on Friday, May 7 at 5 pm – 10 pm! This ticketed preview event will be held in conjunction with MAP’s 40th Anniversary campaign. Purchase a $30 ticket to Out Of Order and receive a complimentary MAP membership + a MAP 40th limited edition risograph print. Purchase tickets HERE. Virtual programming to be announced!

The OOO & KIDOOO Online auction opens to the public, Saturday, May 8, running one full week through Saturday, May 15, 2021 and is FREE. The event link will be announced as “Live” on Saturday, May 8 via MAP’s website and various social media outlets and newsletters. All bids must be submitted no later than 10 pm on Saturday, May 15.
