The BMA is coming to the Family Center!
The Baltimore Museum of Art is coming to the Family Center July 10 through September 27! The Family Center will host the BMA Outpost, a mobile extension of The Baltimore Museum of Art, on Tuesdays 3-7pm, Wednesdays 3-7pm, and Thursdays 9am-1pm.
The Outpost is the mobile extension of The Baltimore Museum of Art that will be in residence for three months working with the Family Center and community members. The BMA Outpost will engage community members in dialogue, making art and focusing on the theme of “home.”
Thank you to all the generous people who donated to our Summer Enrichment Program! This program provides a safe place for children to engage in activities designed to encourage personal growth, increase individual self-esteem, improve interpersonal and social skills, and foster a sense of family and community.
Your support will help our kids participate in a variety of activities this summer, such as art workshops through Art with a Heart, French lessons, yoga classes, planting and harvesting at Baltimore Free Farm, STEM activities, rowing classes at Baltimore Rowing Club, swimming at Roosevelt Recreation Center, weekly field trips throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area, and more! You brightened the children’s summer!
If you didn’t get to contribute to our campaign, you can still make a donation to the Family Center.
