Creative Alliance

3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore, MD 21224 www.creativealliance.org

When Creative Alliance, a community arts non-profit started in 1995, grew too large for its location in Fells Point, the organization’s search for more space led them to The Patterson Theater building in the Highlandtown Arts District. Extensive multi-million dollar renovations of the former movie theater began in 2000. Most of the interior was gutted except for a fireproof concrete projection booth, which remains as part of the cafe’s dining room. The remainder of the space was transformed into a multi-purpose art center with galleries, artist studios, a marquee lounge and a flexible theater. While the historic vertical sign was one of the last originals in the city, extensive deterioration meant it could not be salvaged. Instead, Creative Alliance had it replicated and replaced just before the building’s reopening in May 2003. Exhibitions will be on view and open to the public.
