There's a good idea somewhere inside the concept of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's Explorer Series. It just hasn't been fully mined yet. Keyed to exhibits at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the series adds chat and visuals in an effort to provide wider context for music. The debut program in January, focusing on Picasso, featured an amateurish slide show and occasionally stuffy text by Mark Mobley. Nothing much was gained, for art or music. BSO Performances at 8 tonight, 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets: $25-$75.

Ever had the urge to attend a burlesque workshop on striptease or learn the history of the beehive hairdo? Maybe not, but only for lack of opportunity. The 25th annual Maryland Arts Festival offers these and other cultural events for the next month. The festival, taking place in Towson University's newly renovated Center for the Arts tomorrow through July 23, covers theater, opera, concerts and art exhibitions centered on "A Celebration of Women."

In the past 12 months, some especially high-energy creators have relocated from other metropolises and set up shop within city limits. While a scrappy inventiveness isn't new here — far from it — it could be that the city is reaching a critical mass of innovative thinkers in the arts. Baltimore may be on the verge of a growth spurt that will establish it once and for all as an arts center. It may be about to become a laboratory for experiments that blur the lines between theater, music and dance and the rest of life.
