Ronald McDonald House Charities Baltimore (RMH) is building a new house in the historic Jonestown neighborhood of Baltimore. Scheduled to open in early 2019, Our New House will more than double the space of the current house so that families will no longer have to be turned away. Our efforts to offer the most effective and compassionate family-centered care in the world will continue in a new space filled with love.
In order to ensure a joyful energy within Our New House, and knowing that art can strengthen healing and lift the human spirit, RMH is seeking artists who will contribute artwork as part of the joyful décor. Not only will this donated art reach a world-wide audience of RMH visitors, but colorful, happy artwork is sure to bring comfort to the seriously ill children and their families who call this their home-away-from-home while they receive care. As we hope to spotlight artistic diversity and fill the house with the creative talent found from our community, we are asking that artists consider creating an original custom art piece or donate an existing work to hang on our walls.
WHAT: Ronald McDonald House Charities Baltimore is seeking artisans willing to donate new or existing original work which supports the theme “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE”.
HOW: Submit contact information with your artistic statement by completing the online application or download the application form to complete offline. If you do not have an updated website, we require that you send samples of your current work. After review of the applications, selected artists will then be asked to provide a proposal with a sketch of the art you envision creating or the existing work you would like to contribute to the House.

Many children and families pass through our doors. Help us bring smiles to our kids with the gift of your artwork. Take a moment to read the words below from the parents of a child who has lived within our walls. These words may help you decide to join us and make a contribution to the House that Love Built. Be part of the miracle.
How can you ever thank people who made it possible for our family to concentrate on our child’s therapy and nothing else? We made lifelong friends and found an amazing place where people come in experiencing fright and sorrow and through it all find that hope and joy prevail. That is the goal and mission of the RMH, a special place. The children that share the RMH home are all miracles. To have one place where all of these children can learn, grow, and just be kids without judgment…. that makes the Ronald McDonald House a miracle in itself.
