Join us for Ernest Shaw’s Testify! A Life’s Time of Emerging Blackness July 8th through Sept. 28th here at Motor House. Like the work of prolific artist James Baldwin. Shaw’s portraits wrestle with the complexities of being both Black and conscious within a system that honors neither attribute.
As the BCF headquarters, Motor House will host the opening night party and opening ceremony showcase on Wednesday, Aug. 28, as well as three premiere headliner showcases Aug. 29, Aug. 30, and Aug. 31. The closing party is Sept. 2 at The Sidebar, 218 E Lexington St, Baltimore, MD 21202. Many BCF events are free; the premiere showcases and events with tickets range from $10-$20.
Our Theater, West Bay performance and meeting space, and Showroom bar is now available for event rentals in 2019.
