About Signal Station North

Overview

Signal Station North is an innovative district lighting plan and public space engagement initiative for Central Baltimore. This unique collaboration between local artists, designers, and nonprofits explores light in public space to engage, empower, and enhance communities.

Over the course of the project, which began in late 2019 and will be complete by 2022, the Signal team has developed a number of projects, publications, workshops, and events. Guided by focused listening, research, and urban analysis, these outcomes include a public space lighting plan, creative lighting installations, and practical community tools for the Station North Arts District and other communities wishing to implement lighting projects.

The project is led by the Neighborhood Design Center and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Central Baltimore Partnership, BOPA, the France-Merrick Foundation and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.
