Through a process of focused listening, research and urban analysis, Signal Station North will develop a conceptual and practical public space lighting plan for the Station North Arts District.

Supported by the NEA and Central Baltimore Partnership and led by the Neighborhood Design Center, Signal is a collaborative project of local artists, designers and nonprofits. By June 2021, it will include:

  • A plan for lighting and activating exterior public spaces in the Arts District.
  • Three small-scale demonstration light projects produced in collaboration with designers and artists.
  • A series of workshops and guides to share learnings, best practices and lighting advocacy broadly.

After two years of community listening, analysis, and design, we’re sharing our findings and recommendations for bringing creative, collaborative light to Station North (and beyond).
