The Americas Chapter is delighted to invite you to SAVE THE DATE
to its first field trip to Baltimore, Maryland on Friday, March 24, 2023
On the occasion of Coming Attractions: The John Waters Collection, we have organized a special visit to the Baltimore Museum of Art’s Department of Prints, Drawings & Photographs to explore the George A. Lucas (1824-1909) Collection
John Waters, best known for his groundbreaking films set in his native Baltimore, is also a widely exhibited artist and collector. Catherine Opie and Jack Pierson have guest curated the current display (on view through April 16) to celebrate Waters’ bequest of 372 works.
In 1996, the BMA acquired the collection of George Aloysius Lucas exponentially expanding their holdings of nineteenth-century prints. Born in Baltimore, the son of publisher Fielding Lucas, he settled in Paris in 1857 where Lucas became an important agent for William T. Walters and Samuel P. Avery.
