This collection examines collective ownership of artists' live-work spaces in Baltimore, Maryland’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District. 

Interviews were conducted between October 2012 and July 2013 with artists and residents of the Cork Factory warehouse at 1601 Guilford Avenue in Station North. Topics include the history of the Cork Factory building, development of the state’s first arts and entertainment district, the process of redevelopment and neighborhood change, as well as personal histories from artists and activists involved with the project. 

The complete collection--which consists of 10 audio interviews, corresponding transcripts, and photographs of interviewees--is available through the online collection guide.


Aiden Faust conducted the interviews and took the associated portraits between October 2012 and July 2013. Aiden curated the exhibit in August 2014 and added it to this site in October 2019.




Transcription of the interviews in this collection was made possible through the support of the University of Baltimore Foundation's Baltimore Renaissance Seed Scholarship Fund.
