Highlandtown is filled with vibrancy, color, and art. We are home to the Creative Alliance, Highlandtown Gallery, Y:ART Gallery, and more. We also love to showcase our talents right on the main street with impromptu Mariachi bands, yarn bombings, and dance performances.

We are a neighborhood of makers. We’ve got designers, jewelry makers, metal workers, and puppeteers working alongside coffee roasters, piñata makers, and chefs. We are home to a muralist who opened an international residency program, a tech company inventing slick new phone apps, and a sculptor restoring Baltimore statues AND creating custom seating for our local plaza!

Visit our arts businesses and venues!
