Baltimore: "For Whom It Stands"

You'd think the inviting outdoors of summer would be a poor time to stage a new or high profile temporary museum exhibit. Well, sooner or later there's going to be a rain day and when that happens, we've got a few suggestions.

Baltimore: "For Whom It Stands: The Flag and the American People" is on display at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture May 17, 2014 through February 28, 2015. Few people realize that Grace Wisher, a young African American indentured servant in Mary Pickersgill's household, worked on the flag that became our national symbol. Wisher's contribution to American history will be honored in this 3,200-square-foot exhibition featuring more than 75 works of art, artifacts, documents and photographs about the history and representation of the U.S. flag as an icon.
