Station North received the Arts & Entertainment District Outstanding Achievement Award from the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development. The neighborhood was recognized for its significant contributions made to the state's economy through both art and culture, and, at award presentation, MICA was acknowledged for having a key role in the work and development of young artists in the district.
"The Station North Arts and Entertainment District demonstrates the power of Maryland's greatest asset: the talents, skills, ingenuity, education, and creativity of our people," said Governor Martin O'Malley.
Located in the heart of Baltimore, Station North was the first area in the city to receive state designation as an A&E District in 2002. Spanning the communities of Charles North, Greenmount West and Barclay, Station North is a diverse collection of artist live-work spaces, galleries, rowhomes and businesses -- all just steps away from Penn Station and Mount Vernon. Arts and Entertainment enterprises within the district include: the Charles Theater, Maryland Institute College of Arts Studio Center, Single Carrot Theatre, City Arts Apartments, the Metro Gallery, Load of Fun, Baltimore Print Studios, the Windup Space, Area 405, Everyman Theatre, Hexagon Space, Strand Theatre Company and the Schuler School of Fine Arts.
