Meet us in the Sculpture Garden for A Midsummer Night’s Gala, an art benefit supporting the BMA and a group of brilliant artists connected to the Baltimore region hosted by BMA Dorothy Wagner Wallis Director Asma Naeem and BMA Board Chair James D. Thornton.

Guests will mingle with artists including Derrick Adams, Kyle Yearwood, Murjoni Merriweather, Jamaal Peterman, Jabari Jefferson, McKinley Wallace III, Jerrell Gibbs, and Tawny Chatmon, and bid on their original artworks in a silent auction. A digital auction catalog will be available soon.

This gala is presented in collaboration with The Last Resort Artist Retreat(TLRAR), a Baltimore-based residency that offers space for Black creatives to rest and recharge. Auction proceeds will directly benefit TLRAR with tickets and sponsorships providing essential support to the BMA’s mission to create a museum that welcomes our community and uplifts the work of artists.

Summer-themed cocktails and dishes will be served by Maryland Mobile Bar and H3irloom Food Group surrounded by picturesque gardens and stunning modern and contemporary sculpture.

Tickets and sponsorships are available beginning at $250. Learn more at
