BALTIMORE, MD.- The Baltimore Museum of Art announced today that it will reopen with limited capacity on Sunday, March 28. The museum will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with timed-entry passes available to the general public beginning Monday, March 22 through the BMA’s website. The BMA plans to welcome up to eight people per each 30-minute time slot for a maximum of 112 people per day—well below Baltimore City’s 25 percent capacity guidelines. All visitors are required to answer two questions about COVID-19 exposure on the day of their appointment and wear face masks and observe gallery capacity limits and social distancing. The BMA is prepared to alter its plans should further precautions be necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of staff and visitors.

Coinciding with the reopening, the BMA will debut three new 2020 Vision exhibitions originally scheduled to open in fall 2020. Sharon Lockhart: Perilous Life features film, photography, and sculpture that bookend Lockhart’s 10-year engagement with a group of children in Łódź, Poland. Tschabalala Self: By My Self features 15 new and recent paintings and sculptures that capture the intricacy and singularity of Self’s formal techniques, which include stenciling and tracing, printing, casting, and mechanically stitching lines of thread as a means of exploring the Black female form. Lisa Yuskavage: Wilderness brings together more than 15 paintings that show the artist’s expansive treatment of landscape through lush and dexterously crafted compositions that tantalize the eye and beguile the mind. These exhibitions, as well as Katharina Grosse’s colorful and expansive fabric artwork Is It You?, will remain on view through September 19, 2021.

Other exhibitions currently on view are Stephanie Syjuco: Vanishing Point (Overlay), a three-part installation that examines how image-making is implicated in the construction of racialized, exclusionary narratives of history and citizenship; She Knew Where She Was Going: Gee’s Bend Quilts and Civil Rights, which showcases five recently acquired quilts by the famed Black textile artists from Alabama; and Adelyn Breeskin: Curating a Legacy, which honors the many achievements made by the BMA’s director from 1942 to 1962.

“When we launched our small group reservation system in February, we could not have imagined the overwhelming response and clear desire by the public to return to the BMA. The enthusiasm from our audiences was both heartening and further indicative of the importance of art to our lives. I am delighted that we have now begun the slow and thoughtful process of making the museum even more available to visitors,” said Christopher Bedford, the BMA’s Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director. “We are also reopening our doors with an outstanding array of exhibitions that capture the richness and depth of contemporary creation and honor the important contributions of female-identifying artists and an important leader of this museum.”
