Announcement: "The Guardians" SL Launch at The Peale, 3PM today


Join us as we celebrate the Peale's newest exhibition, The Guardians -- a photo documentary & storytelling project including large-scale photo portraits, and digital archives that celebrate unrecognized Black female leaders across Baltimore City neighborhoods.

This event will officially launch The Guardians exhibition in Second Life, where the Peale building has been painstakingly recreated for online visitors around the world.

We will start with a live-streamed event that explores the future of the Guardians and their tireless work. Hear about their community initiatives and how they plan to continue to make a change in Baltimore into 2022 and beyond.

This virtual exhibition accompanies the physical exhibition on display in real-life from October 30, 2021 – December 19, 2021 at The Peale at Carroll Mansion in Baltimore, MD. Photographic banners are also currently on display on the front of Baltimore’s City Hall

This project provides a platform for women who spend their lives fighting for a better, more equitable Baltimore.

Additional content, including biographies, quotes and audio stories from each of the 13 Guardians is available on the exhibition website at http://guardians.thepeale.org


The Peale is home to the world’s largest digital collection of Baltimore stories, and is renovating the first museum building in the United States, established by artist Rembrandt Peale in 1814, to provide a showcase for the city’s storytellers that honors their importance and historical value. Our mission is to ensure the whole story of the City is told, and, by amplifying its communities’ voices, to help people everywhere see Baltimore in a new light. In the innovative spirit of the Peale family of artists and explorers, the Peale is a new kind of civic museum: both a laboratory and a teaching museum – not just a treasure house, but also a production house of culture.
