Cheers to Art Outside festival

The recent Art Outside at Druid Hill Park returned the park, Baltimore, and its environs to a rare and nostalgic experience ("Arts patron revives Druid Hill outdoor festival," May 17). To see the diversity of attendees melding among the art, entertainment and sheer fun — all within a unique, and naturally picturesque setting in the city — was a welcome breath of fresh air! The happening not only commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Druid Hill Park Reservoir, it also inspired people to pause, take a relaxed break from the distresses of the world and have an old-fashioned good time.

Barbara Shapiro, and her hard-working team, artisans and supporters truly gave Baltimore a special gift. Encore!

    I am disappointed with Gov. Larry Hogan's decision to withhold $68 million in school funding that the General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to use to help our students ("Hogan funds pensions, but nothing more for schools," May 15).
