The Baker Artist Portfolios were 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 free online portfolios expose area artists' work to regional, national and international audiences. The Baker Artist Awards provide significant monetary prizes to awardees, who are selected from artists with active Baker portfolios.  

The portfolios and awards were established by the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund and are a program of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance.
