Citizen Stand: Battle for Baltimore 1814


Sunday, September 21st, 1pm


Performed by Baltimore School for the Arts


Included with Museum Admission


Help us welcome BSA to the JMM for a performance of their latest student production, Citizen Stand: Battle for Baltimore 1814. Students have worked with Maryland Historical Society and National Park Service to develop three short plays about the battle that led to the writing of the Star Spangled Banner.  The plays explore different experiences for Baltimoreans in the lead up to war. One play is especially important to us as there is a character not dissimilar from Mendes Cohen. 

Start: September 21, 2014 1:00 pm

Members Opening: The Making of The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen


Sunday, September 14, 5:00pm


Just for members of the Jewish Museum of Maryland and members of our partner The Maryland Historical Society we have a special *free* insider’s evening at the maze. 


This will be a chance to not only meet our living history character and explore the exhibit, but also to here from the creative voices who turned a little-known 19th century soldier, businessman and adventurer into a physical experience.  Our panel of experts will delve into the decisions that drove the development of the maze and character – and reveal some of the stories and anecdotes that had to be sent to the “cutting room floor.”  It’s a chance to go behind the scenes of the exhibit process for people who love museums.

Start: September 14, 2014 5:00 pm
End: September 14, 2014 7:00 pm
