Title: Baltimore's Billy Baldwin

Don't miss Baltimore's Billy Baldwin, opening at JHU's Evergreen Museum & Library on Thursday, May 20, 6-8 p.m (rsvp 410-516-0341 or  Organized by Evergreen director and curator James Abbott, along with students in his spring 2010 seminar on modernism at Johns Hopkins, this exhibition looks at the work of Baltimore-born William "Billy" Baldwin (1903–1983), one of the most ingenious of 20th-century interior designers.   (more)

Furniture, textiles, fine art, and photographs illustrate the professional evolution of Baldwin, the so-called dean of American decorators, whose long career introduced a more relaxed and practical interior design sensibility.  The exhibition focuses attention on Baldwin's life-long pride in his Monument City origins, and includes vignettes representing three of his Maryland-based commissions that show the development of his now-iconic design vocabulary.  Baltimore's Billy Baldwin and  its accompanying publication are made possible by The Richard C. Von Hess Foundation.  The exhibition will remain on view through October 24, 2010.
