Location: MICA Falvey Hall
Reception: 5 p.m. | Conversation: 6 p.m.

In partnership with the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and For Freedoms, a platform for civic engagement, the BMA hosts artist and For Freedoms co-founder Hank Willis Thomas. For this satellite event in the popular series The Necessity Tomorrow(s), Thomas will discuss the creative community’s role in fostering a more civil society.

The Necessity of Tomorrow(s) is a conversation series on art, race, and social justice. It takes its title from a Samuel Delany essay that argues for the role of creative speculation in making a more just future. By bringing visionary artists and thinkers to Baltimore to consider key ideas about society and visual culture, the BMA is providing a platform for participants and audiences to think differently about questions that affect us all.
