mission

Founded and based in Baltimore, MD, rhubarb rhubarb visits artists studios to discuss with them their artistic process, sustainability, and business practice. In late 2018 we will offer studios to local artists, short-term residencies for international artists, and create free and public exhibitions, performances, and events that focus on collaboration and critical conversation. rhubarb rhubarb creates a unique environment for Baltimore artists to make artwork, obtain professional advice, and opens opportunities for collaboration with visiting international residents, while also making art accessible by engaging the local neighborhood with artistic practice.
