The third of eight events of the “Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love letters” exhibition at Maryland Art Place and Area 405 January 17 to March 10 (www.onethousandloveletters.com), “Cupid’s Arrow” takes place on the eve of Valentine’s Day, indulging in romantic love. The 5:30-6:30pm reception period is graced with composer/jazz pianist George Spicka, and light fare provided by The Classic Catering People. With an assist from the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, the event includes audience members sharing their own testimonials of Valentine’s love, and a special interactive love letter activity by performance artist Spoon Popkin. The 6:30-8:00pm program features Nicole and Alonzo Lamont with a tale of stolen moments blooming into a marriage; cabaret performer Betsey Hobelmann honoring 18 years of marriage with a song; husband, father, scholar-activist, storyteller and drummer David Fakunle praising his love; and more. Jazz vocalist Simone Speed offers song throughout the evening, and a recognition moment is given over to Ken Royster, whose photograph of a young couple included in the exhibition perfectly invokes the theme of romance.
Baltimore magazine serves as the media sponsor for the “Beyond Beautiful: One Thousand Love Letters” exhibition. For more details, visit www.onethousandloveletters.com.
