The BMA at the Family Center!
The Family Center began hosting the BMA Outpost, a mobile extension of The Baltimore Museum of Art on July 10. The Outpost is in residence through Sept. 27, engaging community members in dialogue, making art and focusing on the theme of “home.” We have seen that art has the power to bring people into the same space, and begin conversations. To date, the art that has been created and the exchange of dialogue have provided information about the community and one’s role in it — whether new to Hampden or an old Hampdenite, the perspectives are most valuable. Caroline Lampinen, Community Engagement Coordinator for the project is on site Tuesdays 3-7pm, Wednesdays 3-7pm, and Thursdays 9am-1pm.
The Family Center follows Baltimore City Public Schools for inclement weather closings and delays.
The Hampden Family Center relies on individual donations as a means of supporting the Hampden community.
