1448 showcases artwork created by members and tenants of Artists' Housing, Inc. Check out the On The Wall section to see what the current exhibit is. The work is as varied as the individuals that live and work in our Baltimore cooperative. Works range from traditional forms of painting and sculpture to works involving computer generated images or found-object assemblage. The poets and writers among the membership host readings, and we are currently preparing to present films made by members.
Members began 1448 in January 2001 with the purchase and renovation of 1448 East Baltimore Street - one of the ground floor units in the housing cooperative. A group effort transformed a housing unit into a thriving art space.
Receptions for all the featured artists, open hours on weekends, and artist-sponsored dinner parties are all helping to promote community development between the arts community and our neighbors.
1448 is growing and changing with Artists' Housing. The start of 1448 and the birth of 1448.org are exciting steps in the continuing evolution of Artists' Housing, Inc.
