This past July marked the 36th year for Baltimore's Artscape festival, held in the neighborhoods surrounding UB. The three-day annual event attracts more than 350,000 attendees. Featured are visual art exhibits and live performances highlighting the work of more than 150 artists, including crafters, sculptors, photographers, dancers and musicians.
UB's unique contribution to the festivities is Gamescape, a program showcasing video games and the creative people who produce them. Held in Gordon Plaza, Gamescape gives visitors the opportunity to browse and interact with selected new games from local and national developers, as well as revisit a few classic favorites.
