An Opening…or two…or three…

For those of you not from Baltimore, last week started off with Opening Day at Camden Yards for our beloved Orioles. While the closest I actually got to the big day was navigating through the very orange traffic, it did remind me of a few other openings that may interest a retriever or two….

The Thursday just before Opening Day was opening night for our Theatre department’s Gum, which took place in our Black Box Theatre in the brand new Performing Arts & Humanities Building. Gum ran from Thursday through Sunday and was the second Black Box production for this academic year. Next up will be Criminals in Love from May 1-4.

Last Thursday was the opening reception for UMBC’s graduate students in the MFA program in the Visual Arts department. While graduate school might seem far away for you, or maybe not for you at all, this exhibition provides yet another art fix for undergrads without leaving campus! After the MFA students move out of the Center for Art Design & Visual Culture, our undergraduate seniors will install their thesis work just before they graduate from UMBC!

What kind of opening would you have at UMBC?
