Thanks to our All That Art Sponsors (to date):

 

All That Art began in 2006 and since then has grown into Maryland Hall's second largest fundraising event thanks to the generosity and support of individual art patrons, collectors and local businesses that support the event through sponsorship support, donations and art purchases.  Proceeds from the sale of the art is split evenly between the artists and Maryland Hall.  In addition to sales, the event provides artists with recognition and visibility to new audiences.

All That Art benefits Maryland Hall's visual arts program, which mounts countless exhibitions throughout the year, providing additional exposure to artists.  The event also support Maryland Hall's outreach activities that ensure students of all backgrounds have access to the arts.
