Through the Baltimore Museum of Arts' hand-in-hand activity with various organizations and schools throughout the state, art is becoming a vital part of life for the young and young at heart.
||Collaborations increase the BMA's community impact
Through collaborations with other arts and educational institutions, the Baltimore Museum of Art uses its collection to increases its impact on the lives of people in the region. Those who set up the collaborations feel that art should be an everyday part of life, not just something to view in art classes.
The Baltimore Museum of Art fellowships with the Johns Hopkins University and Morgan State University help educate the next generation of scholars, researchers, and educators through art. These fellowships give undergraduates from Morgan State and graduate students from Johns Hopkins the opportunity to undertake original, independent research on art in the Museum's collection. The culmination of this work is a series of public lectures and through this the Baltimore Museum of Art engages these accomplished students, who then, in turn, engage our audience. Through this, the Museum allows its students to fully understand the workings of art in culture.
Additionally, third and fourth graders in the Child First after-school program worked side-by-side with artists-in-residence from the Baltimore Museum of Art creating a colorful mosaic tree sculpture for their community.
