Gallery Closure Announcements
Continuing through 2016, the Walters will temporarily empty the galleries of art in Hackerman House to repair and update fire safety and climate control systems. This $5.5 million refurbishment, for which the State of Maryland and City of Baltimore have provided lead funding, matched by private contributions, is the first of several planned enhancements to the Walters’ five-building campus.
