Baltimore Museum of Art

:Annual Report 2008

2008 was an unprecedented moment in the 94-year history of The Baltimore Museum of Art. The BMA had launched a $65 million capital campaign to ensure its continued relevance and vibrancy to Baltimore and the region. Given the economy, the BMA wanted to convey a message of strong stewardship with regard to donor funds. This annual report highlights the campaign’s theme, In a New Light; identifies the year’s milestones; recognizes donors; and supports the BMA’s vision of being a must-see cultural destination and a vital civic presence.


:Online Annual Report 2009

In 2009, The Baltimore Museum of Art, like every nonprofit institution in the country, found itself responding to a new economic reality. The year began on a positive note. The BMA had just announced the most ambitious endowment and capital campaign in its history. Then the landscape in which the BMA was operating changed dramatically. Attention shifted quickly from planning for the future to maintaining services and managing a new set of economic challenges. To help the Museum respond to economic realities, By Design Partners designed and produced the BMA’s first interactive online annual report, and helped the Museum make the most of its resources while maintaining its momentum and mission of becoming a leader among art museums.


:Cezanne Exhibition Website

Cezanne and American Modernism is the first exhibition to explore how a small group of pioneering American artists championed the reclusive French artist before he gained international prominence. By Design Partners worked with The Baltimore Museum of Art to design and produce this exhibition’s interactive website. In addition to the informative and educational look at Cezanne and his influence on a generation of American artists during the first third of the 20th century, the site offers a close up view of nine important artworks from the exhibition, audio tours, a schedule of related events, and ticket and Museum membership information.
