Artists' Housing Incorporated

AHI logo In the mid-1980's a small group of artists, city planners and members of the Washington Hill community came together with an ambitious goal; to create an unusual housing opportunity for members of the Baltimore arts community. In 1987 Artists' Housing Incorporated was officially opened providing affordable housing for artists in a supportive cooperative environment. In 1998 this Baltimore pioneer of housing cooperatives celebrates the Eleventh Anniversary of its Charter

We have come a long way and those who have passed through our doors have each added to our creative and diverse atmosphere uniquely. Over the years, we have housed painters, poets, installation artists, musicians, writers,graphic artists, photographers, sculptors, film makers, fiber artists, costume designers, set and lighting designers, dancers, teachers, arts administrators and architects, many of whom both live and work in their units on Baltimore Street.

Low cost housing, once a driving concern of those who founded AHI, has now been supplanted by pride of ownership in an artistically supportive community. We have seen the fruits of our dedication in our homes, in our neighborhood, and most importantly in our studios. We have seen cooperative action in our living space, our gardens that have transformed the neighborhood, and in our professional work.
