The Marquee Ball is our fabulous annual gala dinner, auction and dance party. Each Spring we choose a movie as a theme, and partygoers dress up in costume with eye-popping results for Balitmore's Best Party! The Marquee Ball supports the Creative Alliance's free afterschool and neighborhood outreach programs. Creative Alliance's programs are praised for their high quality by parents, teachers and educating institutions alike.

THIS YEAR:
2015 Marquee Ball: To The MAX!
Saturday, April 18th
Who knew the apocalypse could be so much fun?
This spring's Marquee Ball is themed on the apocalyptic film series Mad Max. Join your favorite arts survivors for an unforgettable evening of great food, drinks and dancing inside civilization's last apathy-free zone, the Patterson! Expect great dance music, performances in the main gallery, a curated silent art auction, and amazing vacation and restaurant deals.
In a world of rust, dust and indifference, join our insurgency to fight for the right to be CREATIVE, no matter what the future brings!

Black History Month Project at Tench Tilghman Elementary/Middle School

Program Type: Comprehensive After School Program
Population: 65 students; grades K-4

Creative Alliance provides comprehensive out of school time programming to students in grades K-4 at Tench Tilghman Elementary/ Middle School. Each day, students receive homework help, exercise, art enrichment, snack, and supper. Our art enrichment activities include: theater, puppetry, African drumming, cultural dance, and fine art.
 
In celebration of Black History Month a select group of Creative Alliance at Tench Tilghman students have studied four highly influential African American musicians: Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Leontyne Price, and Jimi Hendrix. First, they viewed various performances by the selected artists on YouTube. Afterwards, students discussed the impact these musicians have had on current music, including pop, hip hop, rock, jazz, R&B, and soul. In the end, the students embodied the spirit of each musician by recreating famous portraits of them. 

These portraits were recently exhibited as part of the National Aquarium's Black History Month Community Celebration. The portraits will also be on view at Creative Alliance as part of the Envisioning History: Johns Hopkins Black History Month Art Competition from Feb 27 - Mar 17, 2015. 

Billie Holiday: Courtney B., 3rd grade
Ray Charles: Cortez B., 3rd grade
Jimi Hendrix: Raymon H., 3rd grade
Leontyne Price: Milae G., 3rd grade
