Putting the Monuments in Monumental City: The Schuler School of Fine Arts
May 11, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$10 | Register
Baltimore sculptor Hans Schuler was the first American to win the French Salon’s gold medal at the Academie des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1901. Luckily for us, this former president of the Maryland Institute College of Arts has monuments dotted throughout the city: Martin Luther at Lake Montebello, Johns Hopkins and Sidney Lanier at Hopkins University, Samuel Smith in Federal Hill Park, to name a few. Schuler’s legacy is carried on today at the Schuler School of Fine Arts and Gallery. Eight years after his death in 1951, his son Hans Schuler, Jr. formed the school, converting the family home on Lafayette Avenue into a studio and gallery. Since its opening in 1959, the school has trained students in techniques of the Old Masters in the home where Schuler once lived and worked.
Please join us and our guide from the Schuler School for a tour of the house, working studio, and garden. We’ll see works of the master as well as works in progress by current students. You can make an arts-themed day of it and plan for lunch after the tour at one of the restaurants in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District where the school is located.
