Last November, the Baltimore Museum of Art announced it would exclusively acquire artworks by women in 2020 and mount 22 exhibitions featuring the work of women artists or focused on women as subjects. The radical gesture was designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. The museum’s all-female programming was inaugurated at the end of last year with Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure, an installation in the East Lobby (Nov. 24, 2019-May 2021). Additional exhibitions on view this year include SHAN Wallace: 410 (March 1-June 28, 2020), Valerie Maynard: Lost and Found (March 1-June 28, 2020), Howardena Pindell: Free, White and 21 (March 1-June 28, 2020), Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young: Back and Song (March 1-June 28, 2020), and Shinique Smith: Grace Stands Beside (March 15-Aug. 9, 2020).
