2nd Wednesdays

2nd Wednesdays is a series of free lectures, concerts, and special arts events for all adults in the community. This series spotlights local talent and provides a first-rate cultural experience.  Its other aim, no less important, is to afford community adults an opportunity to spend time sharing culture and conversation with neighbors. It’s held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.

** Due to COVID-19, 2nd Wednesdays will take place digitally (when possible) until further notice. Subscribe here to receive email updates with links to view the online lectures and presentations, or check this page regularly. **

2nd Wednesdays attendees enjoy jazz in the garden.

Upcoming 2nd Wednesdays programming

  • May 12, 7pm The Clifton House: Keeping the Legacy Alive. The Clifton House in Windsor Hills is where National Book Award-winning poet and author Lucille Clifton and educator/activist Fred J. Clifton raised their six children. One of those children, Sidney Clifton, went on to become an Emmy-nominated producer with a passion for developing and supporting the underserved community of writers, artists, storytellers and creators. She recently bought her childhood home and is now in the process of developing it into a workshop and retreat space for writers and artists. Alexia Clifton, Sidney’s sister and partner in the project, will give a presentation about plans for The Clifton House and supporting the vibrant community of creatives in Baltimore.
