In 1968, nine Catholic peace activists protested the Vietnam War in a fiery blaze in Catonsville, Maryland. “Activism and Art: the Catonsville Nine, 50 Years Later” examines one of the most iconic and written-about acts of political protest in 20th century American history. Through art created by Catonsville Nine activist Tom Lewis and elements of the documentary “Hit & Stay: a history of faith and resistance,” this exhibit explores the motivations and considers the consequences of civil disobedience, and contextualizes this protest in our present turbulent political climate.

Fiber Redux pairs the work of two mixed-media artists. In her colorful sculptural work, Kelly Boehmer entangles symbols of fantasies with metaphors for anxieties while Meg Schaap’s artwork expresses a contemporary portrait of France’s iconic Queen Marie Antoinette.
A free exhibit reception will be held on January 18 (snow date: January 25) from 6-8pm.
This exhibition features approximately 30 photographs by artists born in Vietnam, China, Japan, and Korea between 1929 and 1980. Each work explores a time of day, a reflection on legend or history, a past remembered and missed, or a future imagined and anticipated. The images also explore suspended time, periods of waiting or boredom. Some of these works are real-time images, others were created as a result of the time an artist spent immersed in the world of the image—the time required to manipulate the subject or to capture the image.
Beauty stops us in our tracks. It makes us pause, look, consider. Sometimes it overwhelms us. We are often told art should aspire to this standard and be proportionate, symmetrical, naturalistic, and orderly. But what of work that is designed to revolt and terrify? Across sub-Saharan Africa, artists working across a range of states, societies, and cultures deliberately created artwork that violated conceptions of beauty, symmetry, and grace—both ours and theirs. Subverting Beauty features approximately two dozen works from sub-Saharan African’s colonial period (c. 1880–c.

"Structure and Perspective" brings together commissioned works by Maryland-born artist David Brewster with objects from the Maryland Historical Society’s collection. This marrying of old with new, contemporary with “antique,” creates a dialogue that inspires thought-provoking discussions of how the objects of the past remain relevant to today’s ever-changing social landscape. It also highlights Brewster’s often challenging perspective on the modern world, one that looks to the overlooked or unseen.
