BALTIMORE, MD.- The Baltimore Museum of Art remains temporarily closed and looks forward to announcing its reopening date in accordance with health and safety guidelines. In the meantime, it has expanded its digital resources to continue offering unique art experiences for virtual visitors quarantined or self-isolating at home. The museum’s newest digital assets include Virtual Gallery Walks, BMA Stories, and Free Family Sundays at Home, a weekly family art project.

“The health of our community, staff, and volunteers is our primary concern during this unprecedented global health crisis,” said Christopher Bedford, BMA Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director. “The BMA had opened 10 extraordinary exhibitions by female-identifying artists as part of its 2020 Vision initiative just a few days before the closure began and I am very proud of the creative ways the museum staff is working to make sure the work of these outstanding artists and curators can still be seen.”

In addition to browsing images of the 20,000 objects on and enjoying social media posts on Facebook and Instagram, virtual visitors can access the following digital resources:

Virtual Gallery Walks
Social media followers can watch videos for a glimpse of 2020 Vision exhibitions celebrating the achievements of female-identifying artists such as Valerie Maynard, Jo Smail, and SHAN Wallace.

Free Family Sundays at Home
The BMA popular weekly drop-in event is now a do-at-home craft project that will be emailed every Sunday. Visit the BMA’s website to see the projects and sign up for the email list.

More than 100 downloadable Art-To-Go activities for kids are among the educator resources on the BMA’s website. The BMA’s digital team is updating the archive so it will be easier for everyone to browse.

BMA Stories
Launched last year, BMA Stories includes thoughtful features and behind-the-scenes glimpses of museum work. Current highlights include artists Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young in conversation with Arthur Jafa and artist SHAN Wallace offering insights into her photography of Baltimore City.

BMA Go Mobile
The museum is repurposing BMA Go Mobile in-museum smartphone tours for people to use at home with tours for families, teens, and other special interests.

BMA YouTube videos include artists talks and events, as well as a channel of “A Closer Look” artist interviews.

Still to come, Virtual Guided Tours will have a museum interpreter leading a tour through the galleries and taking questions from participants. Tours will include 2020 Vision exhibitions, collection highlights, and special tours for families.
