Festival attendees can eat traditional foods and desserts, shop for jewelry, clothing, and art as well as enter raffles.

The new free admission policy at the Baltimore Museum of Art and at the Walters is one of the happiest arrivals on the cultural scene in a long, long time. I spent hunks of several weekends at both places, catching up with pictures and wonderful stuff I first encountered decades ago. There were so many new visitors, including young art enthusiasts who might not have ponied up under the former pay-at-the-door policy. For starters, the free admission has blown apart the entry gates bureaucracy.

The Baltimore Museum of Art has received a $1 million gift from a local philanthropist to support its new policy of free admission to the public that begins Oct. 1. Suzanne F. Cohen, former chairwoman of the BMA board and a long-time supporter of the museum's programs, donated the money last November, during her tenure as board chair, to establish an endowment that will be known as the Cohen Family Fund for Free Admission, the museum said. The BMA announced in May that it would offer free admission in the fall, but because it wanted to capitalize on the excitement generated as the first day of the new policy approached, it waited until last week to name Cohen as the first donor to support the initiative.

The next day, Ibrahim came back with his three children - not knowing it was Friends and Family Day, a special pool party for the public. Both the event and admission to the pool were free from 1-3 p.m. Sunday. "Today, we got lucky," said Ibrahim, 45, as he held his pool-drenched son, Lucas, 3, in a towel in his arms.
