Night at the Walters Art Museum then Eats

I went to this exhibit, learned a lot and thought you guys might like it. They are open late and admission to special exhibits are free on Thursdays. After the museum, we can catch a bite. I was thinking XS or an everyman restaurant like DaVinci's Market & Bistro.

Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe

A Wealthy African from the Renaissance

Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe invites visitors to explore the roles of Africans and their descendants in Renaissance Europe as revealed in compelling paintings, drawings, sculpture and printed books of the period. Vivid portraits from life both encourage face-to-face encounters with the individuals themselves and pose questions about the challenges of color, class, and stereotypes that this new diversity brought to Europe. Despite the importance of the questions posed for audiences today, this is the first time they have been addressed in a major exhibition. Organized by the Walters, the exhibition opens in Baltimore on October 14 and at the Princeton University Art Museum in February 2013. It will feature about 75 works of art drawn from the Walters, major museums in the U.S. and Europe, and private collections.

    I was just at the Walters last night. Constellation Thursday Nights are definitely the right time to visit the museum. If driving, nearby on street parking is easy to find and free, if you show up shortly after 6PM. And the Walters is often nearly empty on Thursday nights. I mean, I was the only person present in most of the rooms I entered. Which was borderline spooky when I was admiring sarcophagi in the (excellent, and highly recommended) ancient Egypt part of the museum.
