It is our hope that this exhibition inspires thoughtful conversation and discussion and enables us to engage with and learn from our talented Baltimore-based artists,” said Donna Drew Sawyer, CEO atBaltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA).

The theme for “B2020” is a presentation of Black, Male and Body. “B2020” honors the most important African American Curator and Director of The Studio Museum in Harlem, Thelma Golden. In 1994, Golden curated the very first large scale exhibition at a major American art institute, the Whitney Museum of American Art, depicting Blackness in America. The exhibition was titled “Black Male.” “B2020” celebrates this landmark exhibition and provides our Baltimore-based artists a platform to express their creative narrative on the Black body. Whether painting, mixed media, video or photography, “B2020” delivers curated voices in tune with Black Lives Matter.
