For Baltimore arts groups, 2018 was a year of transition

Borrowing a page from Baltimore’s big-time professional sports teams, for which the past year proved a time for major changes (the Ravens in the form of a new young quarterback, the Orioles in the form of just about everything), the local arts scene settled on 2018 as a year of transition.

From new leaders to new venues, from new names for old favorites to revivals looking to recapture past glories, many Baltimore-area artists and arts groups used the year to take stock. Some decided to move on; others decided to re-invent themselves. The result is an arts scene determined to hold onto what it has, yet not afraid to try new things in the name of expanding its audience.
