Baltimore Museum of Art has created a “diversity initiative” this fall through a partnership with the National Pan-Hellenic Council that will donate three of the museum’s three signature artworks — John Singer Sargent’s “Topaz” (1858), Louis Comfort Tiffany’s “New York City Bridge” (1857) and James McNeill Whistler’s “View of the Chesapeake Bay” (1862) — to four historically and culturally-diverse schools in Baltimore, Maryland. The museum is selling the works and a portion of the proceeds will go to the associations which selected them.

In a statement, Baltimore Museum of Art Art Curator of Arts Programs Reva Goldstein said, “The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) has put in place a series of great arts and cultural programs for minority students across the city. They came to us and said they wanted to help our students and they wanted our support.”

The program will benefit Baltimore County High School (1210 Holmes Ave), Baltimore Polytechnic Institute (2411 Read Blvd), and Randallstown Senior High School (1701 Nicodemus Road).
