The mission of Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) is to address the needs of the arts community through arts and cultural activities, advocacy and support; create pride by promoting Baltimore to Baltimoreans; and, to use the arts and events marketing tools to promote Baltimore’s assets locally, regionally and nationally. BOPA produces festivals, special events, and promotions for Baltimore City and develops and administers funds, grant programs and community workshops. In addition, BOPA manages several historic attractions and sites in the Baltimore area. Facilities include School 33 Art Center, The Cloisters, the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower and the Top of the World Observation Level in the World Trade Center.  


The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc. is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We strive to mirror the rich diversity of Baltimore City in our staffing and programming while emphasizing cultural equity. Cultural equity embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people-including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion-are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources.
