Baltimore Museum of Art presents Generations: A History of Black Abstract Art
This month, the Baltimore Museum of Art presents more than 70 paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media works by black artists from the 1940’s to the present offering a sweeping new perspective on the evolution of abstraction.
Just recently, matriarchs of Baltimore’s art community, Joyce J. Scott and Oletha DeVane were there with a lively conversation with renowned art historians Dr. Leslie King Hammond and Dr. Lowery Stokes Sims.
This work of art is presented by The Helis Foundation and organized by the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. For those of you who love this type of art will truly love this exhibit.
The BMA is located at 10 Art Museum Drive in Baltimore. A few weeks ago, my husband, Shorty and I were invited to take a tour of this amazing museum and not knowing a darn thing about art, I was truly fascinated with the works of art on display. I can only imagine that the people out there who know the art world how much you would enjoy the tour of this exciting building.
Oh my goodness, I am out of space, just when I was getting started. I got to go now, but remember if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
