BCPS, Baltimore County introduce “smARTS,” a local arts television show


A collaboration between the Baltimore County Commission on Arts & Sciences and Baltimore County Public Schools and its television station, BCPS-TV, will result in a new quarterly program designed to celebrate the county’s lively arts scene.

The show, called “smARTS” and hosted and co-produced by Commission Chair Carolyn Black-Sotir, was introduced to the media on Monday, March 4, in the BCPS-TV studio. In an interview on the set of the program, Black-Sotir discussed the importance of the arts and the new show with County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and BCPS Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance.

Both men extolled the arts in Baltimore County; Kamenetz discussed the range of arts and artistic venues available to Baltimore County citizens, and Dance talked of his enthusiasm for the many artistic performances and endeavors of Baltimore County’s school children.

The half-hour show will be produced and taped at BCPS-TV studios at the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Towson. It is a co-production of the television station and the Commission.

The show will premiere on Thursday, March 7, on BCTV, Baltimore County’s Comcast Channel 25. It will air Thursdays and Fridays from 7 – 7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays from 11:30 – noon.
