Backstory and Context
The Baltimore Museum of Art’s main building was
built in 1929, in the "Roman Temple" architectural style. The
210,000-square-foot museum was designed by renowned American architect John
Russell Pope. A $28 million multi-year renovation that began in 2010 has
transformed and modernized the museum’s galleries and added a new center for
art, creativity, and community.
Throughout the museum, visitors will find an outstanding selection of American and European painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; prints and drawings from the 15th century to the present; works by established and emerging contemporary artists; and objects from Africa and Asia. Two landscaped gardens display an array of 20th-century sculpture.
