Sky Stage is a pre-Revolutionary building shell in downtown Frederick's historic district, transformed by artist Heather Clark with a team from MIT into a public art installation and community arts venue, with programming facilitated by the Frederick Arts Council. Offerings include drum circles, theater, live music concerts, artisan markets, comedy and improv nights, story times, literary readings and poetry open mics, fine art installations, yoga and fitness. Sky Stage is an all-ages, open-air venue, so please dress for the weather. Check out the calendar at SkyStageFrederick.com for offerings and updates.
