Join us for a celebration of Get Your Life! (GYL!) video productions, run by middle school students in collaboration with a dedicated group of adult artists and institutions. GYL!’s new exhibition at the BMA presents videos, costumes, props, and documents created over the past four years since the group’s founding in 2014 by Lee Heinemann. The Baltimore-based artist created GYL! during an extended residency at 901 Arts, a grassroots community center dedicated to providing art and music programs to the children and teens of the Better Waverly neighborhood.

The fun-filled afternoon features:

  • Exhibition tours with Get Your Life! artists
  • DJ set by Jared Brown
  • Treats by Bronze Sugar Baking
  • Open House Tours of 901 Arts (complimentary shuttle bus service to/from 901 Arts)
  • Performance by the 901 Arts Drumline
  • and a Michael Jackson tribute by Dimitri Reeves
