Depths of History: The Circles in Mount Vernon and Beyond

Registration is required.

Ninety years after the Walters’ founding collection was donated to the city of Baltimore and its residents, we invite audiences to join us for a conversation that interrogates the past while situating us in present-day Baltimore. In this conversation moderated by Michelle D. Wright, historian and professor of Africana Studies at Community College Baltimore County, we explore the interconnectedness of artistic, business, and social circles in Mount Vernon and surrounding neighborhoods in the past and present. Kristen Nassif, the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Walters, will share her research about how William and Henry Walters’ business enterprises and social circles impacted their collections. Dr. Kate Drabinski, scholar and professor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will share research about present-day Baltimore.
