The Cloisters was bequeathed to the City of Baltimore by its original owners, Baltimore natives Sumner A. Parker and G. Dudrea Parker. Inspired by extensive travel throughout Europe, as well as the United States, the Parkers built the castle as their summer home. Although the structure itself only dates from 1932, many of the architectural elements are far older, lending the house an ancient feel. The Cloisters features a four-story spiral stair tower, chapel, cloistered garden, windmill, elaborate stained-glass windows & doors, multiple fireplaces, hand-painted murals, ornamental ironwork, balconies and much more.
The Baltimore Office of Promotion &The Arts is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which serves as Baltimore City’s arts council, events agency, and film office. By producing large-scale events such as Light City, Artscape and the Baltimore Book Festival, and providing funding and support to artists, arts programs and organizations across the city, BOPA’s goal is to make Baltimore a more vibrant and creative city.
