Evergreen Museum, Johns Hopkins University Museums

Evergreen Museum, which opened to the public in 1990, is at once an intimate collection of international art assembled by two generations of Baltimore's philanthropic Garrett family, and a vibrant, innovative venue for contemporary artists. Housed in a stunning 19th century Greek Revival mansion on 26 landscaped and wooded acres, the Museum provides an unusual backdrop for the viewing of art.

Evergreen's preeminent collection reflects the late-19th and early-20th century tastes and varied collecting interests of the Garrett family, who called Evergreen home from 1878 to 1952. Its residency-based art programs invite contemporary artists to draw inspiration from the museum's galleries, archives, and heritage to create and showcase new works, making the historic collection a vibrant, creative source for new works and artistic innovations.
