Art installations in vacant storefronts around Federal Hill will continue for another year, with a second grant from Abell Foundation to Federal Hill Main Street. The grant enables the Federal Hill-based Art Exposure, Inc., to display works by local artists in vacant properties.
In addition to making the spaces more attractive to passers-by as well as potential businesses, the project offers exposure to artists from the Baltimore area. The grant covers art displays in three addresses in the Federal Hill commercial district, and art is rotated regularly to feature different artists. Photographs by Jerry Weinstein (pictured here) are on display at 1201 Light Street.
