Keep your eyes open for a small museum in your neighborhood.
The BMA Outpost is a roving public space that will be exhibiting reproductions of works from the BMA’s collection, all related to the idea of home through time and across cultures. This small museum-on-the-move will also have content created by you – the residents of Baltimore. It is a museum about place, about home, and about why this city matters to all of us.
What does ‘home’ in Baltimore mean to you? Is it egg custard sno-balls, sitting on the stoop in front of a brick house, the way the clouds look over the Inner Harbor, or your grandmother’s collection of cups and bowls? You can contribute to a map of the neighborhood with places and memories that are meaningful to you!
The Outpost is an exchange, a conversation, a dinner table. You bring life and meaning to this space, then we decide together how it grows. We will be visiting places all over the city and partnering with organizations already working in your neighborhood.
In October, the BMA Outpost will be set up from 1-5 Tuesday-Friday at The St. Francis Neighborhood Center at 2405 Linden Ave.
I look forward to visiting your neighborhood, and making a museum with you.
