About Chesapeake Arts Center: The Chesapeake Arts Center (CAC) is a 58,000 sq. ft. multi-discipline arts facility located in Northern Anne Arundel County, just inside the Baltimore beltway. Our facility houses a 752-seat Hammonds Lane Theatre, a 120-seat Studio 194 Theatre, gallery space, ceramics lab, dance studios, music room, maker-space and classrooms.

Chesapeake Arts Center will use the arts to excite, educate, engage, inspire and grow this community’s people, it’s artists and the region through performances, exhibitions, classes, and collaborations with artists, educators, business and community leaders and organizations.

About Chase Brexton: Founded in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood in 1978, Chase Brexton began as a volunteer-run gay men’s health clinic. Our work took on a new and difficult challenge in the early1980s when we became one of the first clinics on the front lines of the fight against HIV/AIDS. After seeing the needs of the family and loved ones of those we served, we expanded our services, adding Behavioral Health and Case Management services in 1991 and finally expanding to full Primary Care services in 1995.

Chase Brexton became a Federally Qualified Health Center in 1999, the same year we opened a second center, now located in Randallstown. Two years later, Chase Brexton earned accreditation in both Ambulatory and Behavioral Health from The Joint Commission. As the decade continued, we opened centers in Columbia and Easton, and, in 2013, moved our Mt. Vernon Center to its current home in the historic Monumental Life Building on Charles Street. In 2014, we opened our Glen Burnie Center, and in 2015, we achieved recognition as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home.

Though health care continues to rapidly change, we will always honor our heritage, embrace diversity, and empower our patients, while innovating for the future.

Chesapeake Arts Center Seeks Storytellers, Photos for Historic Book on Brooklyn, Brooklyn Park and Curtis Bay

cac

BROOKLYN PARK — The Chesapeake Arts Center is looking for people with stories to tell about the memories of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Park and Curtis Bay to help fill a one-of-a-kind history book that will help capture those memories and bind them with the community so they are never lost.

The goal of the book is three-fold:

  • provide the local community with a unique written and illustrated retelling of the area;
  • offer the CAC a meaningful way to connect with the communities it serves;
  • provide local photographers, illustrators and writers an opportunity to publish their work

The book will spotlight histories of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Park and Curtis Bay, and will also focus on areas such as:

  • Masonville
  • Fairfield
  • Hawkins Point
  • Fort Armistead
  • Cedar Hill
  • Pumphrey
  • Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard

In addition to written stories on local events, people and landmarks, the CAC is seeking people who have photos that may have historic significance to these areas. In many cases people may have photos in their personal collections to share. Photos that have a relevance to the book include photos of significant local events, community leaders or landmarks, such as the Polish Home, Club 4100 or Masonville, Fairfield, Pumphrey, etc.. Those with the ability to scan these photos can upload them for consideration to the book team at www.OurMarylandHistory.com.

The CAC board of directors approved the history book project in 2016 and the Center will be having a gathering on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 6:30PM at its headquarters at 194 Hammonds Lane in Brooklyn Park. The Center hopes to pull together people who would like to contribute short stories on their memories for the book that will be published for the holiday shopping season in December 2017.

Proceeds from the book will be directed back into the CAC’s non-profit programs aimed at using the arts to excite, educate, engage, inspire and grow this community’s people, its artists and the region through performances, exhibitions, classes, and collaborations with artists, educators, business and community leaders and organizations.

Those interested in using their writing skills to help us document their memories for this project should attend. For more information contact Nicole Caracia at ncaracia@chesapeakearts.org or Rik Forgo at rforgo@gmail.com.
