Neighborhood Lights kicks off the weekend of April 6-8, 2018 with many neighborhood projects potentially on extended view through Light City, a festival of light, music and innovation, taking place at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Saturday, April 14-Saturday, April 21, 2018. New next year, Neighborhood Lights expands to reach fourteen neighborhoods compared to eight in 2017. By pairing these artists with communities, neighborhoods across the city will light up with artwork created with, for and by Baltimore City residents. Projects will be designed and developed collaboratively by the artists and community groups within their designated neighborhood.
