Since its founding, the BMA has been exhibiting and collecting works by contemporary artists, resulting in an impressive collection of 20th-century art. The collection has unique strength in works by women, artists of color, and artists whose work makes a profound social statement. Building on this legacy of excellence, the BMA is forming an equally compelling collection for the 21st century. Socially relevant, cutting-edge acquisitions, exhibitions, and programs will lead the way both locally and globally—and historical accuracy, merit, and equity will become the basis for a new canon across our Museum. To inquire about a specific work on view, please call 443-573-1701.
