Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery is Noteworthy for its Public Art, Ties with MICA
Posted 09.01.11 by MICA communications
Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery is famous for the historical figures interred within its walls -- Betsy Patterson Bonaparte. John Wilkes Booth. Allen Dulles. Yet the site, which is one of the earliest "garden" cemeteries in the United States, is also home to a noteworthy range of public art-19th- and early 20th-century sculpture with significant ties to MICA. William Henry Rinehart's work can be found there, marking the burial sites of important figures in Baltimore's history as well as his own grave. Former MICA President Hans Schuler and former Rinehart School of Sculpture Director J. Maxwell Miller, members of Rinehart's first graduating class, are also well-represented in Green Mount.
