BMA Lexington Market is a branch of the Baltimore Museum of Art where visitors come to create, share their stories, and participate in public programming. Our completely renovated space builds on the success of our previous stall in the former East Market, giving visitors even more room to experience and create art.

Open every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You’ll find us in the Upper Market near the Baltimore Room at 112 N. Eutaw Street. View a map.

Located inside of America’s oldest market, BMA Lexington Market honors Baltimore’s rich history in partnership with local organizations and creatives. A new theme is selected each season to guide programs and activities. Since the stall’s opening on June 27, 2019, we’ve explored the topics of food and its access and systems, as well as the legacies of our communities, through workshops, performances, artist talks, screenings, and more. We welcome visitors to our new home under the theme of Holding Space

Admission is always free. Step into our stall, make art, read from and contribute to our non-circulating library, or propose a program of your own.

Mark Bradford: Niagara

On View Now! | BMA Lexington Market presents Mark Bradford’s Niagara, a 3-minute color video that was displayed as part of the artist’s exhibition for the U.S. Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Referencing a famous saunter by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film noir Niagara, it shows Melvin, Bradford’s former neighbor, walking confidently and purposefully down a Los Angeles street.

This work will screen at BMA Lexington Market every Monday-Wednesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
