Be our guest as we marry the drama and excitement of a wedding day with the extraordinary collections of artifacts, photos and documents assembled by The Jewish Museum of Maryland. We promise nostalgia, surprise, humor, insight and a new level of understanding of the meaning and experience of this important social ritual. From ketubahs to chuppahs and the sound of breaking glass, American Jewish weddings meld the secular with the religious, sometimes in unexpected ways.

Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.
For 40 years, Al Loving experimented with materials and process to expand the definition of modern painting, drawing on everything from free jazz to his family’s quilting tradition. In the 1980s, Loving broke free of the flat image, using heavy rag paper to make three dimensional collages in brilliant colors. Spiral Play features 12 of these collages, some of them monumental in scale. The work is radical, beautiful, and deeply human. In the artist’s words, “I chose the spiral as a symbol of life’s continuity. It became an overall wish for everyone.”

Our original award-winning all ages walking tour is the Original Fells Point Ghost Walk Tour, running since 2001! Picture Fell’s Point, in Baltimore, Maryland, as it was, a rowdy seaport town, the birthplace of the sleek and dangerous clipper ship. Its streets were full of sailors from foreign lands spilling off ships, immigrants anxious to start a new life, and ladies of the night looking to make ends meet. Given this explosive combination, is it any wonder that many ghosts remained behind?
