September 9: Be Here: Edu design charrette led by the Omnimuseum Project and the MuseWeb Foundation. We’re recruiting community members who would like to contribute to an upcoming exhibition and programming that will feature stories of Baltimore’s public schools and trace the roots of contemporary issues to segregation and the city’s Colored School system, including the Peale’s own past as Maryland’s first public high school for people of color.

  • October 6-29: Birdland and the Anthropocene free exhibition and programs at the Peale and throughout the city, curated by Baker award winner Lynne Parks. The artists in the show offer creative solutions for mitigating human impact on the natural environment of the city, and bird populations in particular: for example by decorating windows and controlling light so that migrating flocks don’t run into glass in buildings.
