Every spring for the past few years, Make Studio artists have been invited to come “up county”, to show their work in special exhibitions highlighting inclusion, creativity, and community in the beautiful public spaces of Baltimore County Public Library's Hereford Branch. Several of our artists have also developed and presented popular mixed media workshops to groups in the library’s The Hive makerspace.
UMBC's Department of Visual Arts presents the 2020 Visual Arts Senior Exhibition, celebrating the work of graduating seniors in Photography, Graphic Design, Cinematic Arts, Animation/Interactive Media, and Print Media and reflecting the interdisciplinary orientation and the technological focus of the department.
By referencing multiple wisdom traditions in his work, Alex Grey’s paintings point toward an inclusive vision, and a universal sacredness, that extends to his great reverence for nature. Allyson Grey is a painter, social sculptor, and Alex’s creative and life partner since meeting in art school in 1975. Join us for a tour of the Grey's studio with live Q&A. Alex Grey's "Planetary Prayers" is on view in our current exhibition "The Secret Life of Earth." The Grey's virtual tour is free, with registration required.
Women Heal through Rite and Ritual draws from the imaginative narratives of artists Lavett Ballard, Tawny Chatmon, Oletha DeVane, Shanequa Gay, Delita Martin, Elsa Muñoz and Renée Stout who look to non-Western traditions for inspiration in exploring a woman’s role as nurturer of family and community; and as traditional healer, conjure woman, and clairvoyant who dwells in both the physical and spiritual realms.

At the National Aquarium, our core values form the basis for our beliefs about our organization, our colleagues, and ourselves, and serve as the framework to guide our behavior and actions to achieve our mission: to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures.
Thank you for visiting our Transcending exhibits! One of the best ways to view the show is to click on an image of the art. Once open, you can navigate from one artwork to the next using the arrows to the side. It is sort of like strolling through a gallery! You can return to the main page by clicking the "x" at the top of the page. Viewing the art this way allows it to expand into the viewing space so that you can see it better and moving from one to the other will acquaint you with each of the artists who are exhibiting.

In a tiny brick house on Baltimore’s North Amity Street in 1833-1835 Edgar Allan Poe wrote some of the early stories that would make him the father of the modern short story, and create and define the modern genres of mystery, horror and science fiction.
His spirit and legacy live throughout Baltimore City, inspiring authors, poets, playwrights, businesses – and even our sports teams. Poe Baltimore celebrates this legacy.
In fall 2019, UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presented Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. We are pleased now offer this exhibition in an online version, available here.
As It Should Be asked artists to imagine what tomorrow brings. If artists had the power to wake in the morning and have the perfect day, have all problems in the world be solved then what would the world look like? “The artist” is often written off as someone who doesn't understand how the world works and whose ideas have no basis of reality within the current system. What is misunderstood in these moments is that the artist can simultaneously hold the world as it is and the world as it should be. The cognitive dissonance between these two worlds is the space where the artist thrives.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry celebrates Maryland’s industrial legacy and shows how innovation fuels ongoing progress. Our exhibitions, educational programs, and collections engage visitors in the stories of the people who built Baltimore and those who shape the region’s future.
