BLACK, 2012
Artist were selected through a two-tiered process. In early summer 2012, MAP sent letters to Maryland state art leaders, gallery owners and educators soliciting nominations of a single artist for consideration by the LUX jury: Elliott Landy (freelance - NY state & official photographer of Woodstock 1969); Lynn Silverman (instructor - Maryland Institute College of Art); Joshua Yospyn (freelance - Washington DC); Colby Caldwell (instructor - St. Mary’s College of Maryland); and, Josh Sisk (freelance – Baltimore, MD).  After careful deliberation the jury selected 29 artists and 46 pieces for the LUX exhibition this fall.

The LUX exhibition will open as part of MAP’s annual fall gala on November 9 and will be on view until December 15. On the night of the gala, all of the artwork in the LUX exhibition will be available for purchase in a silent auction format. There will be a closing reception on Thursday, December 13 from 6p - 8p, which will be free and open to the public.

The LUX gala is hosted by Baltimore’s own Ray Lewis. Tickets for the Gala are available at missontix.com
LUX is a measure of the intensity of physical light, as captured in a photograph or digital image, and is a metaphorical reference to the spiritual and intellectual light that is created by contact with fresh, exciting works of art.

The Fall Benefit provides crucial revenue for MAP's year-round programming and operations. Connecting artists with communities since 1981, MAP is a Baltimore-based nonprofit contemporary art center.
