About Station North Arts & Entertainment, Inc. (SNAE):
Located in the heart of Baltimore, Station North was the first area in Baltimore to receive the State designation as an Arts & Entertainment District in 2002. Spanning the neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay, Station North is a diverse collection of artist live‐work spaces, galleries, rowhomes, and businesses, all just steps away from Penn Station, Mount Vernon, Charles Village, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the University of Baltimore, and Johns Hopkins University.
Founded in 2005, SNAE strives to ensure that the Station North Arts & Entertainment District builds on its reputation as a nationally recognized creative hub and maintains its appeal to a diverse population of locals and visitors from near and far. To accomplish this, SNAE employs an arts‐based revitalization and placemaking strategy by managing quality public art projects, providing thought‐provoking programming, and forging strong supportive relationships with local artists, designers, residents, businesses, and institutions to guide development in Station North.
SNAE’s recent projects, including Open Walls Baltimore I and II, the Koban Project, the Ynot Lot, and Alloverstreet, have won local and national awards, promoted the district’s creative talent, and produced a more resillient and cohesive arts district. SNAE is managed by an engaged 21 person Board of Directors, and staffed by a Program Coordinator and an Office & Development Manager, both full time positions. SNAE recently moved into a beautiful new office space in the Motor House at 120 W North Avenue.
