The Grand Reopening of the BMA’s Contemporary Wing

Share the News

For far the past two years, Baltimore has had a void.  While we’ve been able to enjoy a good landscape or religious portrait, or even the Kinetic Sculpture Race, we’ve been forced to travel to far-off museums in DC or Philly for a solidly curated contemporary collection.  Come Sunday, the void will be filled.

The BaltimoreMuseum of Art (BMA) is reopening its contemporary wing this Sunday, November 18 after a two-year renovation project.  The new wing has three new exhibitions, two interactive galleries, sound and moving image works, a black box gallery,  and the new BMA Go Mobile interactive art guide app. The installations include a wide range of artists from masters such as Warhol and Rauschenberg, to newer emerging artists on the contemporary scene.

The Grand Opening takes place on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and includes various performances and activities for the entire family.  If you prefer something for a date night, consider coming Saturday night, November 17 to the BMA Late Night at 9:00 p.m.  White Life and Tim Nohe will be providing music, there will be collaborative art-making projects designed by renowned sculptor Maren Hassinger, and discussions led by BMA staff to give you fresh perspectives on new exhibits.  Light fare and a cash bar will be on the premises, so come celebrate in style this momentous occasion for the Baltimore arts scene.
