Annmarie Garden Celebrates Bad Art

Can you create bad art?

Find out this Friday, July 6, at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center’s Bad Art Night! The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Bad Art Night promises to be a hilarious evening of bad art-making, musical comedy improv, karaoke, a cash prize, and indulgent drinks and snacks.

Inspired by the new “Of a Feather: Birds in Art” exhibit, guests are invited to spend 6 to 8 p.m. creating their best worst piece of bird art using the supplies provided. Baltimore musical improv group “Bad Karaoke Experience” will be adding to the fun by circulating and creating spontaneous songs about the artwork!

At 8 p.m., the creators will wheel and deal, trying to sell their creations to anyone willing to buy them, for any price they can manage. The artist who sells their work for the most amount will receive a cash prize and bragging rights.

Tacky party food, bad karaoke, and a cash bar will round out this unique and fun-filled evening. Admission is $5 per person; must be 21 & older to attend. For more information, visit or call 410-326-4640.
