The Baltimore Museum of Art Announces Plans to ReOpen in September 2020


The Museum’s 2020 Vision Initiative Focusing on the Achievements of Female-Identifying Artists Will Resume and Be Extended into 2021.

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) will begin a phased reopening today, with the intention of having all of its galleries and gathering spaces accessible to visitors by September 30, 2020. The museum will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with timed-entry passes available to BMA members beginning Friday, August 28 and the general public on Friday, September 4. The Sculpture Gardens are already open Tuesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to dusk. The BMA also released its health and safety protocols, which include details regarding timed and limited entry to the museum, PPE requirements, changes to visitor flow, and planned signage to remind visitors about social distancing, capacity limits, and sanitary practices. The BMA plans to welcome up to 25 percent of its capacity, or 350 visitors per day, on September 16 and increase to 525 visitors per day by September 30. The BMA’s reopening remains contingent on state and city guidelines, and the museum is prepared to alter its timelines should further precautions be necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of staff and visitors.

Upon reopening, the BMA will resume its planned roster of 2020 Vision exhibitions, which explore and celebrate the achievements of female-identifying artists and leaders. While 2020 Vision was originally developed as a year- long curatorial and programmatic initiative, it will now be extended and unfold throughout the remainder of 2020 and into 2021. The museum will reopen with exhibitions that debuted in March—just weeks or in some cases days before the museum temporarily closed in response to COVID-19. Focused solo presentations of works by Zackary Drucker, Katharina Grosse, Valerie Maynard, Ana Mendieta, Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young, Howardena Pindell, Jo Smail, Shinique Smith, and SHAN Wallace will be on view beginning September 23, and Candice Breitz: Too Long, Didn’t Read, which features two poignant video installations by the South African artist, will reopen September 30 without an admission fee.

Still Learning Together: Beth Tfiloh Provides an Education for Life


From the moment the COVID-19 pandemic came into sight last spring, Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School’s leadership and faculty singularly focused their efforts directly at caring for students and their families. Thanks to our talented and agile faculty and administration, BT was able to create a virtual academy replete with learning, connection, and growth for the youngest ones through graduating seniors.

Last week, we were excited to welcome our students back to our school campus in stages (subject to change, of course). “We’ve spent an enormous amount of time coming up with a reopening plan that takes into consideration, first and foremost, the health and wellness and wellbeing of our school community,” said Beth Tfiloh Director of Education Dr. Zipora Schorr.

The First Week of School in the Children’s Garden at Waldorf School of Baltimore

Curiosity is piqued in garden spaces, especially when caterpillars are crawling around.

When the global pandemic caused schools to abruptly shift to distance learning in the spring, administrators at the Waldorf School of Baltimore began making adjustments for the fall. Last week, they kicked off the school year in a different kind of way.

Students in first through eighth grades began the year with distance learning and a plan to explore subject classes in groups, back on campus, over the coming weeks. Last week, the school welcomed their youngest students  – preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten –  back to a campus outfitted with improved outdoor learning spaces.

“Our curriculum calls for lots of time outdoors even when we are not in the midst of a global pandemic,” said Lindsay Machak, Director of Outreach and Communications, “so we just expanded on what we were already doing.”

Take a look at their first week of school in the Children’s Garden.

Rethinking Baltimore’s Work Spaces for a Strong Reopening

Single-space business centers offer an adaptable, achievable solution for working through and beyond the COVID pandemic.

For many, working from home has become a recent reality. The promise of a zero-minute commute and lunch in your own kitchen once sounded ideal. Now, as boundaries blur between home and work responsibilities, it is not the dream many thought it would be. In a recent study from Gensler, only 12% of 2,300 people said they want to work from home full time.

It is clear, however, that returning to business as usual is also not an option. Like fax machines, stringent corporate culture now feels like an office relic. This, of course, was becoming clear pre-pandemic and spurred the rise of more collaborative co-working spaces. Nevertheless, their wide-open layouts and laidback environments felt distracting before and potentially unsafe now. Where is a Goldilocks to work?
