 Painted screens at the b&o

MOnday, october 5 - sunday, october 11

 

Two of Baltimore’s oldest and proudest traditions – railroading and screen painting – come together at the B&O Railroad Museum this October 5-11! The iconic painted rowhouse screens of Baltimore date back to 1913, when Czech grocer William Oktavec introduced his “red bungalow” scene. Since then, the practice of painting rowhouse screen doors has become a symbol of Baltimore’s rich cultural and historical heritage. Throughout the week of October 5-11, see select painted screen works by artists from the Painted Screen Society of Baltimore on-display in the Museum’s Roundhouse! And on Saturday, October 10 at 1 PM & Sunday, October 11 at 2:30 PM, visitors are invited to enjoy a screen painting demonstration by artist Michael Siepp.
