The Baltimore Museum of Art has launch of a new microsite to house and make publicly accessible nearly all of the videos that had been installed for its major spring exhibition, Candice Breitz: Too Long, Didn’t Read, which closed several days after its opening in March in accordance with health and safety guidelines. The site features Breitz’s powerful multichannel videos TLDR (2017), which explores a series of global debates surrounding sex work, and Love Story (2016), which contrasts narrations of the experiences of six individuals impacted by the global refugee crisis.

For 2020, our platform is virtual and perfectly unfolds the brilliance of artists Will Watson, Xavier Xcel Lightfoot, Christopher Batten, Derrick Smith, Kayla Fryer, McKinley Wallace III, Charles Mason III, Ram Brisueno, Walter Cruz, Moses Jeune and Andrew Gray.
Whether painting, mixed media, video or photography, B2020 delivers curated voices in tune with BLM.

California-based artist Kota Ezawa’s National Anthem (2018) is a meditation on patriotism and protest. The singlechannel animated video was inspired by the actions of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other football players who took a knee, sat, raised fists, or locked arms during the national anthem to call attention to police brutality against unarmed black men and social injustice. Ezawa (b. 1969, Germany) creates work that explores and translates significant cultural events into simulations that question the authenticity of both our experiences and retold histories.

Race is an historical and ongoing conversation, but rarely framed in the context of leadership. Now more than ever, we need leadership that can properly shape racial dialogue, policy, and impact on our society. What kind of leadership is necessary to facilitate healthy relationships between races, and policymaking that will foster equity, inclusion, diversity and harmony? How do we as citizens groom such leaders? Join ethics professor, performance artist and activist Ron Kipling Williams in an in-depth conversation about leadership and race.
The Fall Academy will be monthly workshops from September - December and will address issues of understanding race, unpacking privilege, examining bias, and moving towards racial justice.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf had it right, “The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.”
Aspin Hill Pet Cemetery was established in 1920 in Silver Spring, Maryland when Montgomery County was still mostly rural. Its proximity to the Nation's Capital meant that some of the pets buried there were owned by influential Washingtonians such as presidents, senators, and ambassadors. Over the 100 years of the cemetery's existence, it has been a witness to changes affecting society from urbanization to changing attitudes about the relationship between humans and their animal companions. There are now approximately 55,000 pets buried there and at least 50 humans.
