The Creative Alliance at the Patterson

This historic renovation project transforms the old Patterson Theater into a home for the Creative Alliance. In the heart of Baltimore's Highlandtown, this arts and culture anchor for the community showcases local artists through live/work studios, a theater, art galleries, and reception and cafe space.

Honoring history

  1. Large windows were carefully inserted into the historic structure to open the facility to the community and enliven the street both day and night.
  2. The 32-foot vertical marquee sign from the 1930s was replicated and refurbished, preserving the famous landmark along Highlandtown's premiere street.

Artist's space

  1. Views to the street connect the art inside the Patterson with the vibrancy of Baltimore City.
  2. By encouraging artists to use their studio space as their primary residence, the Creative Alliance's intense programs are the catalyst for great art.
  3. The second floor Amalie Rothschild Gallery's simple design allows artists the utmost flexibility for curating their shows.
  4. This intimate performance space hosts the full spectrum of artist events, from formal theater events to eclectic musical concerts.
