Madonnari Arts Festival postponed

Aug 10, 2020 272

Little Italy Neighborhood Association and Baltimore Jazz Alliance have announced the Little Italy Madonnari Arts Festival will be postponed until September 2021. During the hiatus, a permanent mural and gallery dedicated to Madonnari will be created - the first of its kind in the United States and only the second outside of Italy.

Artist Michael Kirby (left) has begun the mural on Slemmers Alley; it will consist of five vignettes on a backdrop of Renaissance architecture. (Watch the artist in action daily between 6-11 am.) The mural will serve as an entranceway into Little Italy and a permanent promotion of the arts festival. A video production will follow its progress and later posted on the Madonnari's website. The mural is funded by grants from Maryland State Arts Council and SouthEast CDC.
