the big show creative alliance members exhibition and variety show
Wed May 27

Our 25th annual members' extravaganza IS happening! 

The BIG Show Exhibition Opening & Variety Show will take place on Saturday, July 18th, 2020 – and we want you to participate! Don't miss the opportunity to have your artwork on the walls of our main gallery (yes, on our actual walls), or your fabulous talents showcased on our virtual stage! Who knows... you might be the next BIG thing!

The BIG Show was the very first Creative Alliance program that launched twenty-five years of artistic expression, community, cultivation of young minds, and so much joy. It all began in our original location in Fells Point in 1995 and, after few moves, landed in the renovated Patterson Theater in 2003 to spur artistic development in Highlandtown. But, Creative Alliance is more than a location, it’s more than a building, it’s a force for positive change in Southeast Baltimore and beyond, its a community of artists and audiences that believe in the power of artistic expression. And so… THE BIG SHOW Must Go On!

Creative Alliance believes that a Baltimore without live performances is a Baltimore without joy – and we won’t stand for that!

As you likely know, working musicians, dancers, magicians, burlesque performers, aerialists, and other performance-based artists have had their gigs and their livelihoods cancelled for the foreseeable future. Join Creative Alliance in creating performance opportunities for these artists throughout Baltimore while simultaneously respecting the need for everyone to keep a safe distance.

Tue Apr 21

The window of your bedroom slides open and the sounds of the city creep in. Birds chirping. Sirens wailing. A woman sings opera in the distance... badly. You stumble over to your favorite vintage thrift chair, whiskey in hand. You are alone. You’ve watched every 1940s noir genre film on every streaming platform imaginable and you’re waiting for Criterion Channel to release a golden oldie… No? Well, how would you do it?

Get creative and give us your best 5-minute interpretation of film noir! Submit your NOIRANTINE film by MAY 31 to be included in the virtual line-up! All submissions will be posted on the Creative Alliance Youtube Channel in a NOIRANTINE Playlist for public voting on June 7th. Scores will be tallied by likes over the course of 2 weeks, so be ready to share share share!!
