Baltimore City’s three Arts & Entertainment Districts have received a $200,000 grant from ArtPlace America. The grant funds Transit, a project which brings together European and Baltimore artists, arts organizations, city planners and transportation officials to strategically transform transit environments within the Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District, the Highlandtown Arts & Entertainment District and the Station North Arts & Entertainment District. The project was chosen from more than 1,200 applications as an exceptional example of creative placemaking.

Transit places artists and art at the center of city planning, execution and activity to transform undervalued spaces into places where communities gather and thrive. Baltimore is rich with artists and arts organizations, many located within the unique environment and personality of each Arts & Entertainment District. Transit leverages these assets by engaging the creative communities already present to elevate the visibility and capitalize on their commitment to the distinctiveness of each district.
