ARTS & BEYOND

For the last 20 years, BlackRock has provided access to the arts through exceptional classes, performances, exhibits, and community and family events.

 

And the last year exposed just how much we truly need community, connection, and creativity in order to survive and thrive.

For this reason, BlackRock has evolved beyond just a cultural arts center into a central resource for families in and around Upcounty Montgomery County Maryland.  

This includes feeding over 1,000 families every week, providing essential social and emotional learning to children, sustaining the conversation around racial injustice and inequity, and keeping the arts accessible to all when we all need them the most.

BlackRock is here for you, our community, and beyond.
