The BMA is closed through at least Sunday, April 26 to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, but there is still lots to see online. During this time, we are encouraging art enthusiasts to explore behind-the-scenes features and artist interviews on BMA Stories and YouTube, download more than 100 Art-To-Go activities for kids, and browse images of over 20,000 works from every area of the collection. Beginning in April, virtual visitors can participate in Facebook Live Tours of the galleries and enjoy themed tours at home via BMA Go Mobile.
Artist Zoë Charlton & Curator Jessica Stafford Davis talk about Charlton's exhibit, "Rendition" in the Mobile Art Gallery. The Gallery is closed, but we wanted to bring this great conversation to your homes!

Join us for an online discussion of Tara Westover's Educated.
Watch this space for a link to the online meeting.
Educated is a bestselling memoir by a young woman who was born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho and grew up isolated from mainstream society, with no formal education until the age of 17. Her quest for knowledge took her to Harvard and Cambridge, transformed her into a new person, and drove a wedge between her and some of her family.
The response in Baltimore to the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray left a tremendous impact on the city and across the country, the frustration about police brutality toward African Americans remains. Are we moving in the right direction? What does it mean to say Black Lives Matter? Let’s share lessons we learned from the uprising.
We hope your virtual visit to the Pratt Library is a positive one.

Thank you for visiting our Transcending exhibits! One of the best ways to view the show is to click on an image of the art. Once open, you can navigate from one artwork to the next using the arrows to the side. It is sort of like strolling through a gallery! You can return to the main page by clicking the "x" at the top of the page. Viewing the art this way allows it to expand into the viewing space so that you can see it better and moving from one to the other will acquaint you with each of the artists who are exhibiting.

As It Should Be asked artists to imagine what tomorrow brings. If artists had the power to wake in the morning and have the perfect day, have all problems in the world be solved then what would the world look like? “The artist” is often written off as someone who doesn't understand how the world works and whose ideas have no basis of reality within the current system. What is misunderstood in these moments is that the artist can simultaneously hold the world as it is and the world as it should be. The cognitive dissonance between these two worlds is the space where the artist thrives.

In a tiny brick house on Baltimore’s North Amity Street in 1833-1835 Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of the early stories that would make him the father of the modern short story, and create and define the modern genres of mystery, horror and science fiction.
His spirit and legacy live throughout Baltimore City, inspiring authors, poets, playwrights, businesses – and even our sports teams. Poe Baltimore celebrates this legacy.
