The Cork Factory: Artists, Activism, and Collective Ownership

This exhibit examines collective ownership of artists' live-work spaces in Baltimore, Maryland’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District. Ten interviews were conducted between October 2012 and July 2013 with artists and residents of the Cork Factory warehouse at 1601 Guilford Avenue.

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.
