In 2017 the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries began building the world’s most comprehensive collection of rare books, manuscripts, and ephemera detailing the experiences of early modern women from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment.
Evergreen’s new major exhibition, A History of Houseplants, explores the forces that sparked the Victorian obsession with houseplants, reveals how the trend manifested at Evergreen and in Baltimore, and examines how today’s houseplant enthusiasts both recall and differ from the Victorians of 150 years ago.
On view October 1, 2022-June 4, 2023. Gallery open Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-4p.m. Closed Mondays, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day.

The Peale is thrilled to host an important, topical conversation with thought leaders and doers–among them are the Baltimore “Guardians,” featured in the acclaimed community art project The Guardians: Reshaping History. The Guardians are a cohort of Baltimore’s finest, yet underrecognized, leaders. They are ambitious black women leading change in the everyday lives of their families, neighbors and communities. The Guardians panelists will explore individual power and community growth with author Jon Alexander.
