This exhibition highlights prints and original works of art recording the landmarks, landscapes, and historical moments of the city that Charles Carroll Jr. called home. Approximately 20 views provide context for Homewood and include extremely rare states of familiar prints as well as original works of art such as images of the Washington and Battle monuments from a sailor's sketchbook. An 1814 schoolgirl embroidery of the Baltimore Basilica supposes the intended appearance of the structure which wasn't actually completed until 1821. Curated by students from Johns Hopkins University, this selection of subjects from the private collection of Stiles T. Colwill offers a glimpse of Baltimore's early accomplishments and history.

Perception & Ability compares and contrasts the historical with the contemporary as applied to living with physical and other challenges, exploring society’s need for labeling ability levels, and how such labeling affects perceptions. The exhibition juxtaposes the personal and professional history of Evergreen's former owner Ambassador John Work Garrett (1872–1942), who led a successful diplomatic career while masking physical disability caused by a tubercular hip, with the lives of those facing similar challenges in today’s more open and accepting environment. Juried artworks by regional artists will be showcased next to historic objects from the Evergreen Museum & Library collection.
The exhibition is organized by guest curator Gabrielle Buzgo as one of ten thesis exhibitions of the inaugural Curatorial Practice class at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).

Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife Alice befriended American expatriate sculptor Herbert Chevalier Haseltine (1877–1962) in Europe during World War I and from 1926 to 1933 added five of his works to their modern art collection at Evergreen. This exhibition affords an intimate look at the celebrated artist through the vibrant friendship he maintained with his Baltimore-based kindred spirits over 25 years. Installed in the great Main Library—originally designed to display two of Haseltine’s sculptures—the exhibition brings together works drawn from the museum's and private collections, correspondence between Haseltine and the Garretts, and the artist’s unpublished memoir.

Organized to honor the fiftieth anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, this outdoor exhibition of ten sculptural panels by self-trained Baltimore artist Loring Cornish visually narrates the struggle for civil rights in America. Created of found materials, each unique panel delves into the multi-layered struggle for acceptance and tolerance of one another, with the collective assembly hauntingly reminding us of Dr. King's powerful call for a united society.
*The opening has been postponed from the previously announced date of Saturday, May 11.
