Judging by the number of imitators it has spawned, Artscape, Baltimore's annual outdoor arts festival that opens tomorrow, has been a raging success.
As Artscape celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, there are at least three independently organized mini-festivals inspired by its example aimed at capitalizing on the huge crowds that descend on the city during the three-day event.
