Situated in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood, the Walters Art Museum houses a collection of about 36,000 objects and works of art spanning 55 centuries. This presentation will explore what Thomas Hoving, former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, once called “piece-for-piece, the best art museum in the entire United States”. Led by docent educators, view a sample of the discoveries and delights of our collection and learn more about Baltimore’s own Walters family. This one-hour virtual tour will include time for questions and discussion.

This event has been organized by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and the Walters Art Museum.
