I love the BMA! The best part? It's free! Second-best part? There is always great art to see. I have been multiple times – had the opportunity to see multiple Andy Warhol pieces in person. There is an amazing amount of variety in the exhibits. If you're in Baltimore, definitely check it out!
The Lenore Staff LOVES strolling over to the BMA to peruse. What a treasure it is to have such a phenomenal collection so close to us!! We are always gathering up materials to give to our residents and tours so that we can show off the stunning arts our city plays host to. We would recommend a trip here any day to see the truly unique and stunning collection they have curated. Plus, they have free family art workshops on Sundays. How cool is that??
