Tom Miller Day–Free Museum Admission

Did you know that the Maryland Center for History and Culture is the only institution in the city to display a work by Baltimore artist Tom Miller year-round? It’s true! In honor of Tom Miller Week, which takes place February 12–18, we invite you to view Tom Miller’s Summer in Baltimore on display in the Discover Maryland exhibition.

Engage deeper with the stories of Tom Miller and his Afro-Deco work through a symbolism guide and a create-your-own-deco puzzle activity. Stop by the gift shop to purchase a copy of Can A Coal Scuttle Fly?, an autobiography by Tom Miller and Camay Calloway Murphy that inspires readers to follow their hearts to unimagined places.
