What makes a house a home? Celebrating the adage "Home is where the heart is," the Baltimore Museum of Art is now offering its visitors an in-depth exploration of the concept of home. Through 37 international pieces from the museum's world-class collection, four miniature rooms, and an array of interactive exhibits, Imagining Home explores the universal theme of home among various cultures through time, from ancient history to the 21st-century. Not only is Imagining Home a beautifully curated exhibit, it's a thoughtful exploration of family, culture and society.
The inaugural exhibit of the museum's new Center for People & Art, Imagining Home features paintings, sculptures, decorative arts and textiles from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific Islands. From Emile-Antoine Bourdelle's Medusa Door Knocker to household items from Ancient Greece, modern Western appliances to exotic prayer rugs, Imagining Home explores the familial, cultural and social identities of "the home."
More than a typical art exhibit, Imagining Home explores humanity's most shared, universal theme. An excellent exhibit for the whole family, Imagining Home broadens the idea of the home for both adults and young visitors, offering fresh perspectives to home and family life. After experiencing the free exhibit, explore the Baltimore Art Museum's world-renown collection of 19th-century, modern and contemporary art. Boasting over 95,000 works of art, including the largest collection of Henri Matisse in the world, the museum is one of Baltimore's must-visit destinations.
