The L-shaped alley behind the Motor House isn’t visible from the street, so even many lifelong Baltimoreans don’t know it’s there. But turn the corner at 19 1/2 Street from Howard Street, and you’ll find yourself immersed in an outdoor art gallery that changes every day, and where the vibrant colors are reminiscent of stained glass windows. The Station North alley is the rare place in Baltimore where street artists can usually practice their craft without risking arrest.
