The Raoul Middleman Studio Museum will open for its inaugural exhibition, Raoul Middleman: Life in the Studio, on Sunday, April 3 from 11 am until 4 pm. It will be a memorial tribute on what would have been the prolific artist’s 87th birthday. Middleman died last fall at his home in Baltimore.
After a decade establishing himself as an artist in New York City and Paris, Raoul Middleman returned to Baltimore in 1971 to devote himself to painting in his native city. He bought a rowhouse in Mount Vernon to raise his family, and he created a stunning, two-story studio in the rear quarters.
The Raoul Middleman Studio Museum, at 943 North Calvert Street, is dedicated to preserving and promoting the artistic legacy of Raoul Middleman. His work is included in numerous public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art and Baltimore Museum of Art, among many others. He was a past president of the prestigious National Academy of Design and influenced multiple generations of artists as a teacher at Maryland Institute College of Art for more than 50 years.
The museum will be open Saturdays 1 to 4 pm and by appointment. Contact Ben Middleman at email@example.com or (443) 990-1290 for more information.
