The Baltimore Museum of Art announced that it will begin a phased reopening on September 16, 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.
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.
