BMA IMAGINING HOME EXHIBITION ENCOURAGES VISITOR PARTICIPATION THROUGH INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES

. September 12, 2015

BALTIMORE, MD – The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) presents an innovative thematic exhibition, Imagining Home, in conjunction with the opening of the Center for People & Art, a new education center. On view October 25, 2015 through summer 2018, this extraordinary exhibition presents more than 30 artworks across the collection in a lively space that incorporates video, audio, and other interactive elements that encourage visitor participation. More than a third of the objects in the exhibition are light sensitive and will change every six months so there will always be something new to experience.

The artworks in Imagining Home represent different ideas and aspects of the places in which we live—whether decorative or functional, real or ideal, celebratory or critical. Visitors can explore objects from many times and places as nearly every area of the BMA’s collection is included: paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, textiles, prints, and photographs, along with works from the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia, as well as four of the museum’s popular miniature rooms. Each object reveals something about the cultural values of its makers and users.
