'Tis the season to give gifts! With the importance of shopping local this year and the hassle of shipping delays, we've put together a Maryland Hall themed gift list that will please anyone on your list:
Last Minute Local Gift Ideas
Here's a round up of last minute gifts for the art and music lovers on your list.
Local Art Gifts
A Gift That Feels Good
Gift a Maryland Hall membership to a loved one for a donation of $40 (or more) and your friend will reap the benefits for an entire year. Members enjoy exclusive discounts, special offers, members only emails and more. Bonus for this year: Members can stream our special Athletes for the Arts event free!
The Gift of an Experience
Yes, you can still gift experiences this year! Purchase a MD Hall gift certificate online and your lucky loved one can use it towards class tuition for one of our upcoming virtual classes. Classes starting in January 2021 include Photography, Painting and even Pilates. Literally something for everyone!
Perfect Gift for Musicians
This year, we took our annual Paul Reed Smith Music School experience virtual. Thanks to the power of technology, the exclusive event can now be experienced by anyone. The recordings are available for purchase to stream at home. Watch hours of Master Classes by Smith, Dennis Chambers, Tyler Larson, Tim Pierce and many others.
A Gift for the Person Missing Live Music
In response to the pandemic, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra launched their own streaming platform. Symphony+ includes livestream concerts, access to their video archives and exclusive chats with musicians. Gift a subscription to bring live symphonic music back into someone's life.
A Gift for Artists
Art Things, who moved into our historic home earlier this year, can create a custom art supplies box for the creative in your life. They also offer shipping and gift certificates.
A Gift for the Collector
Jo Fleming Contemporary Art's curated exhibit "Art for Gifting" features affordable art ($200 and under) by 12 local artists. The artists include past MD Hall Artists-in-Residence Patrice Drago, Elizabeth Kendall, Sigrid Trumpy and MD Hall Teaching Artist Cindy Winnick among others.
