Discover our Tour Themes

Special Exhibition: Activating the Renaissance

Explore contemporary works of art, by primarily Maryland-based artists, in conversation with major masterpieces within the Walters Italian Renaissance and Baroque galleries. How do works from different centuries explore the same themes through the figurative arts? (Available through February)

Highlights of the Walters Collection

In 1931, Henry Walters bequeathed to the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, “for the benefit of the public,” the collections built by him and his father. Discover highlights from this collection that spans from 5,000 BCE to the 21st century and is rich in works that represent the height of human creativity and artistry.
