Birmingham Museum of Art from Home
During the current pandemic, the Birmingham Museum of Art is taking an active part in connecting our community to the experience, meaning, and jow of art. #BMAfromHome is a new initiative that will help visitors to learn, create, and explore art while the museum is closed to the public.
Sharpen your art knowledge as Graham Boettcher, R. Hugh Daniel Director of the Birmingham Museum of Art takes virtual visitors into the galleries to highlight one work of art from the collection. Join Graham on Facebook Live three times each week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 2 pm. Don’t worry if you miss a live stream all of the videos will be archived on the BMA website. Topics covered so far include the Kress Collection of Italian Renaissance Art, the Golden Age of Dutch Art, and American Modernism 1920 – 1950.
#BMAfromHome also lets you exercise the creative side of your brain! Coloring with kids lets you explore the BMA’s collection through kid-friendly coloring sheets and guided activities. The BMA’s education staff will help you get crafty with art activities for all ages by bringing you new art-making videos each week. Plus, there are interactive art games ranging from puzzles to digital scavengers hunts that are sure to provide something fun for every age.
Get lost in the BMA’s extensive collection. Art Escapes is where members of the BMA staff share works from the museum’s collection that they look to for an art escape, moment of zen or inspiration. Art Shots are mini-exhibitions organized by a different BMA curator each week that bring together several works from the BMA’s collection.
Visitors are the lifeblood fo the BMA, and even though their doors may be closed, the staff is more committed than ever to serving the Birmingham community by using their collection as a resource for reflection, inspiration, and exploration.
