Enter a wonderland of airy horses, birds, and sea creatures appearing to fly, swim, run and swirl. Sayaka Kajita Ganz creates sculptures from reclaimed plastic objects, arranging the fragments of waste into fluid images of birds and animals that appear to be created from brush strokes. The artist states, “My work is about perceiving harmony, even in situations that appear chaotic from the inside,” and notes that her work is inspired by “Shinto animist belief that all things in the world have spirits.”
UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. Drawn from his archive at UMBC, the 55 works in this exhibition created between 1962 and 2006 highlight Fichter’s exploration of the human condition across photography, printmaking, and painting. Fichter employs shifting moods and mediums as well as wit, humor, and satire to deliver trenchant critiques of war, nuclear proliferation, and environmental disaster.
UMBC's Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents Distal’s Musk: Rosy Keyser, featuring new works by artist Rosy Keyser, a painter and sculptor known for working in large-scale gestural, tactile abstraction. Further details and related programing announcements forthcoming.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 31, from 5 to 7 p.m., and the gallery will open for regular viewing hours on Friday, November 1.
Admission to the exhibition and all related events is free.
Every Day: Selections from the Collection is the BMA’s first reinstallation of its contemporary collection centered on black artistic imagination. Nearly 50 works of painting, sculpture, video, printmaking, and photography from the BMA’s permanent collection, alongside a select group of loans primarily from the celebrated Pamela J. Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida Collection, foreground the critical contributions black artists have made to postwar visual art.
This exhibition is on view through March 2020. The MdHS museum is open Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm, and on Sundays, 12 pm-5 pm.
The exhibition features one-of-a-kind appliqué quilts created by Baltimore-native Mimi Dietrich. Ms. Dietrich is one of Maryland’s and the nation’s most accomplished quilters. In 2015 she was inducted into The Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana. “Hometown Girl” tells Ms. Dietrich’s story as a life-long Marylander and Baltimore native, and draws inspiration from the many students she has taught over her 35-year career.
Enjoy free museum admission and collection highlights tours at 11 a.m. every first Thursday of the month. Explore the galleries with a staff member, hear the stories behind the artifacts on display, and learn about Maryland’s rich history. Groups of 10 or more people must book the tour ahead of time.

At the crossroads of blues and American roots music you’ll find Brooks Williams. “Setting new standards and a fresh direction for the blues,” says Blues In Britain, and creating a “beautiful fusion” (Keys And Chords). Just when you think he can’t sing a blues-ier note, he sings it. Just when you think he can’t strum a deeper groove, he strums it.
