`Maryland, My Maryland' at the BMA


May 02, 2002|By LORI SEARS

It's no wonder they call it "Charm City." Baltimore has charm. As does all of Maryland - our "Old Line State." From the rowhouses to Orioles baseball to the crab cakes and the Chesapeake Bay, it's undeniably unique. So in honor of our home state, the Baltimore Museum of Art is celebrating all things Maryland today.

The museum's free Freestyle event "Maryland, My Maryland" allows visitors to explore the artsy side of Maryland. There will be gallery tours that explore the works of Maryland artists from 1890 to 1970. There will be a talk by architect and author Charles Belfoure on the history of Maryland rowhouses. The Baltimore-based Black Cherry Puppet Theater will present the show "Billy Goat Gruff-kin." Local rocker Niki Lee will entertain in the Sculpture Garden. And visitors can construct bay creatures at a hands-on art workshop.

Tours of the exhibit Reflections of Sea and Light: Paintings and Watercolors by J.M.W. Turner From Tate are available for a fee.

The "Maryland, My Maryland" Freestyle event runs 5 p.m.-8 p.m. today at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive. Free. Tours of the "Reflections of Sea and Light" exhibit cost $6-$12; free for ages under 6. Call 410-396-6314 or 410-396-7100.
