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

  • April 14, 7pm Acupressure for Stress and Allergies. Sarah Wehner, owner & acupuncturist at Maryland Community Acupuncture, will teach you how to use acupressure techniques to alleviate allergy symptoms and stress. She will also answer all your acupuncture questions!
  • May 12, 7pm The Clifton House: Keeping the Legacy Alive. Sidney Clifton is an Emmy-nominated producer and the Senior Vice President of Animation and Mixed Media at the Jim Henson Company. Her passion for developing and supporting the underserved community of writers, artists, storytellers and creators was the catalyst for her launching The Clifton House; a writer’s and artist’s workshop and retreat space centered at her childhood home in Baltimore Maryland—the home she shared with her five siblings and parents, educator/activist Fred J. Clifton and National Book Award winning poet and author Lucille Clifton.
