Challenge

Baltimore Museum Of Art Mickalene Thomas Exhibit

The Baltimore Museum of Art was in need of several temporary buildings to create the foundation for an upcoming exhibit “Mickalene Thomas: A Moment’s Pleasure.” Specifically, the museum was in need of a flexible building solution that could fit into a tight, complex exhibit space and be transformed to recreate a 1970s-inspired Baltimore rowhome.

Solution

WillScot’s local Baltimore team provided four connected FLEX mobile offices that could be easily configured to fit on the museum’s roof-top terrace, a challenge most traditional mobile offices could not overcome. The four FLEX mobile offices allowed for a quick delivery, adaptability to the site and easy customization based on the artist’s requirements.

Once installed, the artist, Mickalene Thomas, worked with construction company Plano-Coudon to transform the mobile offices into a 1970s living room to showcase the lifestyle of Baltimoreans during that time. The art exhibit included a vibrant, geometric interior with retro patterned wallpaper, carpeting and custom furniture, while the steel exterior panels were transformed to resemble the traditional and iconic Baltimore brick rowhome with a marble step entrance.
