The Baltimore Museum of Art connects art to Baltimore and Baltimore to the world, embodying a commitment to artistic excellence and social equity in every decision from art presentation, interpretation, and collecting, to the composition of our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers—creating a museum welcoming to all.
Bold, brave, and essential, it is the unwavering vision of The Baltimore Museum of Art to be the most relevant publicly engaged museum in the United States Over 100 years ago, The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) was founded on the belief that access to art and ideas is integral to a vibrant and healthy civic life. This belief is at the heart of the BMA and remains our core value.
The BMA has long focused on acquiring the art of the present moment while maintaining and deepening a historic collection made relevant through vigorous development and reinterpretation in all collecting areas.
Through the courageous and risk-taking vision of previous Museum leaders, the BMA assembled and presented one of the most important collections of 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century art in the United States. These visionary actions established the fundamental character of this Museum. Building on this legacy of excellence, the BMA will form an equally compelling collection for the 21st century.
The Exhibition Designer at the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) oversees the 2-D and 3-D design of all exhibitions and collections displays at the museum. S/he collaborates closely with the curators, artists and exhibitions project managers to develop design concepts and plans for temporary exhibitions and permanent collection installations. Using scaled images of objects prepares accurate drawings-to-scale in VectorWorks, AutoCAD, Sketchup, InDesign, and Adobe CS, including the layout of walls and elevations, casework and casework layouts, color and lighting schemes, for each exhibition. Creates three-dimensional models, quick concept sketches, and renderings as needed. The Exhibition Designer oversees the exhibition design studio and its staff, both permanent and contractual.
