    Baltimore Immigration in the Carroll Era
    August 28, 2019January 9, 2020
    Location: Homewood Museum Price: Free with regular admission

    This focus exhibition uses objects from Homewood's collections to acknowledge the different cultural groups that were living in Baltimore in the early 19th century, during the period the Carrolls were in residence at Homewood. Encompassing objects as disparate as German stoneware, Chinese porcelain, a hammered silver seder plate, and copper alloy manilla (ankle bracelets used as currency from the Nuna Tribe of West Africa), the exhibition endeavors to represent the varied inhabitants of early Baltimore and encourage reflection on the city's continued diversity. 

    An interactive iPad display also allows visitors to learn how the objects were manufactured.

     


    This exhibition was curated by David Donald and Tehya DelGardio-Lawrence, rising seniors at Baltimore School for the Arts, who interned at Homewood Museum during the summer of 2019 through the Bloomberg Arts Internship. Donald and DelGardio-Lawrence were supervised by Kamil Perrussel, Homewood Museum's 2019 Pinkard-Bolton Intern
