New Arrivals: Photographs from the O'Neil Collection
From September 30, 2015 — March 27, 2016
The BMA kicks-off a new series of exhibitions drawn from the more than 3,000 gifts of art acquired during the In a New Light campaign that concluded during the museum’s 100th anniversary in fall 2014. This exhibition features approximately 18 color and black-and-white photographs that were part of a major gift from Baltimore collectors Tom and Nancy O’Neil, who have collected 20th- and 21st-century photography for more than two decades.
Works by contemporary masters and new talents such as Dawoud Bey, Richard Misrach, and Abelardo Morell demonstrate the O’Neil’s interest in images that speak to today’s landscape and environmental issues, as well as portraits that offer sensitive studies of the human experience.
