Joshua Johnson Council (JJC)
There is a real sense of community among the members of JJC who all share a passion for African-American and African art.
JJC is one of the oldest African-American museum support groups in the country. Named after an 18th-century African-American portrait painter who lived and worked in Maryland, its mission is to forge meaningful connections between Baltimore’s African-American communities and the BMA by promoting and highlighting the achievements of African-American artists.
JJC Membership offers a wide range of opportunities for active participation within a network of friends and colleagues dedicated to art, education, community, and family. JJC programs and meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m.
SEP 10 · 6:30pm–7:30pm
Join the Joshua Johnson Council this Thursday, September 10, at 6:30 p.m. on Facebook Live for two presentations: one by artist SHAN Wallace and another by curator Jessica Bell Brown about their work at the BMA and what’s on the horizon for each of them.
Exclusively for BMA Members, participation in a Friends Group provides exclusive opportunities to visit private collections and artists's studios, connect with BMA curators and art experts, and much more.
