Humanities in Baltimore Schools

The City of Baltimore is rich in cultural and humanities institutions which, like the Walters Art Museum have a history of serving youth through field trips, outreach programs, hands-on role play activities, guided tours, and access to content through digital resources. While cultural institutions make every effort to facilitate connections between classroom learning and their content, we need to devise a vehicle for cultural institutions to be a part of the humanities curriculum not only as enrichment but as a meaningful, culturally relevant, and integral part of school-day learning. With funding from the NEH, the Walters will bring together other institutions, school and education representatives, as well as funders to will create an intentional, strategic, holistic plan that will “launch new forms of collaboration towards the goal of restoring and perhaps enhancing meaningful student exposure to humanities instruction.” NEH funding will allow cultural organizations to come together for a series of integrated conversations to determine how to implement the humanities as a core component of student learning, ultimately resulting in changes to school curricula. Funding will support the following activities: a multi-day symposium of diverse stakeholders; presentation of case studies; ongoing working groups; presentations of refined models; and recommendations for realistic alignment of the resources of the cultural institutions with the humanities curriculum. At the conclusion of the planning grant period, we intend to present to the NEH, as well as other local funders, a framework for the robust integration of the cultural institutions in the humanities content in Baltimore City Public Schools.

Access to Art in Encyclopedic Context

Planning for the creation of access to the museum's curatorial files, representing approximately 262 linear feet of correspondence, photograph albums of exhibit installations, an object index catalog, and bibliographic references for an encyclopedic collection of 35,000 works of art that were collected from the mid-19th century through the present and range from ancient, Medieval, and Renaissance works to decorative arts and modern European painting.

The Walters Art Museum requests $40,000 to arrange and describe content of the curatorial files, compile records stored across disparate locations, assess records for value to the humanities, prioritize materials for digitization, and create an online finding aid to inform the public of the information available. The content of these curatorial records pertains to the artworks in the Walters' world-renowned collection and reveals the origins, experiences, and journeys of the treasures in our collection.

Endowing Education Leadership for the Future at the Walters Art Museum

Endowment for key humanities education positions.

The Walters Art Museum requests a $750,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to be matched by $2,250,000 in private contributions to endow two key humanities staff positions, the Director of Education and Public Programs and the Manager of School Programs. This permanent endowment funding will ensure the Walters' continued leadership in serving audiences, using its collection to advance public understanding of history, human culture, and social issues from the ancient past through the present day. The NEH Challenge grant is part of the larger Walters endowment campaign. With a preliminary goal of $10 million in Education Endowment, the Education objectives include funding the positions proposed for NEH Challenge support, other education staff positions, and programs. The cultivation and solicitation of individuals is proceeding and museum staff fully expect to raise the required NEH match by December 2014.

Face to Face: The African Presence in Renaissance Europe

Planning for a traveling exhibition, a website, lecture series, a catalog, and educational and public programs examining the presence of Africans in the art of Renaissance Europe.

The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the planning of the international loan exhibition provisionally titled Face to Face: The African Presence in Renaissance Europe. NEH Grant funds are requested to fund focus groups, exhibition advisory committee meeting travel, curatorial travel related to loans and contributions, and an exhibition research assistant position. To reveal the African presence in Renaissance Europe, the exhibition will examine the geographical, historical and social conditions affecting Africans in Europe. It will then offer face to face encounters with the actual individuals affected by these factors -- from slaves to rulers - through the medium of great Renaissance portraiture.

Creating a Digital Resource of Islamic Manuscripts

Cataloging and digitizing 236 Islamic illuminated manuscripts, which contain 53,000 folios that date from the 9th to the 19th centuries. Images and catalog data would be freely accessible via the museum's Web site and available through a portal maintained by Johns Hopkins University.

Islamic Manuscripts of the Walters Art Museum: A Digital Resource will turn the illuminated and illustrated Islamic manuscripts of the museum, which are currently inaccessible to all but a tiny minority, into the Islamic Digital Resource (IDR), aiding in their preservation, and making them accessible. WAM?s collection of 236 medieval Islamic manuscripts remains underused both by the public and by scholars in the field, at least in part because the codices have never been catalogued. Current technology now allows for the possibility of cataloguing these books, generating digital images of the bindings of these manuscripts, and the 53,000 folios contained within them, and combining this information to create searchable digital surrogates. Through IDR we expect to open these closed books to all, and to provide different audiences with the information and the interfaces that they will need to mine this invaluable resource.
