BMA Opens Renovated Contemporary Wing

 BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Museum of Art is unveiling an exciting new look.

Its contemporary wing has been renovated and, as Tim Williams shows us, it’s an attempt to reinvent the way art is portrayed.

At the Baltimore Museum of Art, there’s a new contemporary wing that may change the way you view art.

It’s a process that includes 16 galleries and more than 100 objects, a $24.5 million renovation.

“We’re looking at what’s happening in the contemporary art world and trying to bring those great artists here to Baltimore for our community to enjoy,” said Anne Manning, Baltimore Museum of Art.

Manning is the deputy director of interpretation.

“The work is about passages, about changes in our lives–transitions,” she said.

You might even see some familiar faces.

“Faces of people who live in Remington, our community. And so Mr. Tulley and Ramone and if you go to the digs, you’ll recognize Elaine so we’ve literally brought the community inside the museum here,” she said.

There are interactive tables where you can create your own artwork inspired by words and an exhibit of the art world’s newest trends to attract a new generation of artists.
