Each year, Baker Artist Awardees are selected by a private jury from up to 1000 artists who create a portfolio on the Baker Artist Portfolioswebsite, which was created to support artists and promote Greater Baltimore as a strong creative community. The online portfolios are open to artists working in all disciplines who live and work in Baltimore City and its five surrounding counties. The portfolios expose area artists' work to regional, national and international audiences. The site has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of art lovers, critics, gallery owners, academics, and leaders in creative business in nearly every country around the globe.
