BMA opens it’s revamped American Wing
The Baltimore Museum of Art recently celebrated its 100th birthday. In addition the museum reopened its American art galleries after a two-year, $7.9 million restoration. The museum incorporated in November of 1914 and held its first exhibitions in a townhouse off Mount Vernon Square. The current museum was designed by John Russell Pope, who also designed the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
