Don’t miss seeing the remarkable photographs by Candida Höfer on exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA)! The show closes on February 26 and features fantastic photographs of our very own George Peabody Library (GPL), among other visually stunning buildings from around the world. As the Baltimore Sun stated so eloquently, this show offers “a kinder, gentler vision of Baltimore.”
Höfer visited Baltimore back in 2010 to photograph GPL and the neighboring Walters Art Museum. Who knew lil’ ol’ Baltimore has such international architectural appeal? (OK, we always knew.)
Want to learn more? Hopkins’ professor Michael Fried is giving a lecture on Höfer and her work on Saturday, February 25, 2 pm. Space is limited, but do consider attending.
If this piques your interest and you want to learn more, check out the books we have about Candida Höfer, books written by Michael Fried, books about the George Peabody Library, and materials about architectural photography in general. There’s a lot of reading to do – you’d better get started!
Even more, you say?? Wow, you’re inquisitive! Investigate the various tools on the Art History Research Guide for scholarly journal articles, images, authoritative websites, and a lot more. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, feel free to ask a librarian!
