Current exhibits include Olafur Eliasson: The uncertain museum (on view through September 30), an interactive installation in which visitors see themselves reflected on three large glass discs, effectively becoming part of the patterns of light and shadow that can be seen inside an outside of the space. The museum's pavilions are currently home to Romare Bearden: 20th Century American Master (on view through August 26) and Containing Antiquity, which highlights the vast variety of vessels used throughout the Mediterranean in the time of ancient Greece. Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore opens November 4 and includes works by Picasso, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cézanne, and others.
