There’s a new place to get smart in Baltimore County. Actually, it’s a place to get “smARTS,” a new Baltimore County arts television show premiering March 7 at 7:00-7:30 p.m. on BCTV, cable channel 25 in Baltimore County.
We call the program smARTS because we believe this is the smart place to find out about Baltimore County’s arts scene. The show covers music, dance, theatre, and visual arts, from Catonsville to Dundalk to Towson and Owings Mills.
We also feel the arts really do make you smarter; smarter about the world, about ideas and emotions, and smarter about how creative expression makes our lives more meaningful and just plain fun.
Carolyn Black-Sotir, chair of the Baltimore County Commission on Arts & Sciences, hosts the program, The premiere show includes an interview with Marin Alsop about the new Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestra, whose new home is the Carver Center for Arts & Technology in Towson; a preview of the 25th Baltimore Jewish Film Festival at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts in Owings Mills; and a discussion about For All the World to See, an exhibit at UMBC focusing on the impact of visual images and the civil rights movement. A “Get smARTER” segment looks at how County composer Valencio Jackson developed the show’s original theme music.
smARTS premieres March 7 and airs Thursdays and Fridays, 7:00-7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays 11:30-noon on BCTV, cable channel 25 in Baltimore County. Segments are available 24/7 on the Baltimore County government web site www.baltimorecountymd.gov
