Located between West North and Maryland Avenue, in North Arts and Entretainment District, Graffity Alley is the only legal art space in Baltimore City. It is a 9.14 x 6.1m wall where street artists can create their work freely without fear of prosecution.
Creativity and artistic collaborations flourish in the alley as street artists, young and old, create piece over piece and modify existing works of art. Many art teachers, including those from MICA and Baltimore City schools, bring their students to Graffiti Alley to learn about street art and graffiti.
Located next to Graffiti Alley, Graffiti Warehouse offers a unique and open space where photographers, models, filmmakers, and musicians also travel from all over the East Coast to conduct photo shoots and film music videos in this L-shaped alley.
Apart from givint the artists the opportunity to paint freely, indirectly, Baltimore City, with this initiative and wall, saves money on graffiti cleaning which costs over $300,000 a year.
Rosenfeld Org is is the cultural manager of this project. It is a non-profit experimental community art organization dedicated to preserving both Graffiti Alley and Graffiti Warehouse and supporting Baltimore street artists.
