Open Hours is a monthly program hosted at the BMA, launched to coincide with the exhibition Imagining Home, in which the public is invited to propose events, workshops, lectures, and experiences to take place in the new Patricia and Mark Joseph Education Center.

Open Hours events are about creating community together through conversations, exchange, and learning. Some examples of Home-related Open Hours programming are: a workshop on making rag rugs, a conversation about vacant houses in Baltimore, and a holiday recipe swap.

All Open Hours programs are free and open to the public, connect to the theme of home, and promote a sense of sharing and exchange. For more information or to propose a program, please contact Emily Chambers at echambers@artbma.org.

Please join us the third Saturday of the month for Open Hours, a new event series made by and for you.
