Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) announce Elizabeth Talford Scott Community Celebration

BALTIMORE, MD – The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) announced the Elizabeth Talford Scott Community Celebration and kick-off for the No Stone Left Unturned: The Elizabeth Talford Scott Initiative will be held at the museum on Sunday, February 4 from 2 to 5 p.m. The event is held in conjunction with the BMA’s exhibition Eyewinkers, Tumbleturds, and Candlebugs: The Art of Elizabeth Talford Scott and celebrates the art, life, and legacy of the late artist. Highlights of the afternoon include a live musical rendition of Floating on a Thread, the exhibition’s music commission produced and performed by Bashi Rose and Adam Holofcener, with performers Michele Blu, Akilah Divine, Scott Patterson, and Cheyanne Zadia. Hear from MICA’s Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS) instructor Deyane Moses and former program participant and educator Mygenet T. Harris as they share the impact, process, and history of the EDS program, and meet artists, educators, students, community leaders, and innovators during a reception catered by Xquisite Catering.

The No Stone Left Unturned: The Elizabeth Talford Scott Initiative brings together five museums and four university sites across Baltimore City for a reunion of Talford Scott’s work from February through May 2024. Each venue had students from the participating colleges—Coppin State University, Johns Hopkins University, MICA, and Morgan State University—working on a presentation of the artist’s work for their gallery spaces and organizing a free public program. Under the guidance of 2023-24 EDS Instructor Deyane Moses, the students met with the artist’s estate at Goya Contemporary Gallery to learn about Talford Scott’s legacy and met with staff from each location to determine the curatorial direction of their presentation and draw out connections to each organization’s collection, space, history, and/or audience.
