Mission Statement:

Motor House is a creative crossroads rooted in the culture of Baltimore. We are a non-profit arts hub, gallery, and performance space that encourages new visions, bold experiments, and emerging voices to celebrate the artistry of our city.


About the Motor House About the Motor House 1

The Motor House building started out literally as that, a storefront selling a horseless vehicle that would transform the early 20th century. Fast-forward to our present century and the building, called “Load of Fun,” was home to artist studios and performance spaces.

In 2013, the building was acquired by BARCO, a non-profit real estate development corporation that’s dedicated to providing affordable and sustainable spaces for Baltimore’s growing artistic community. Collaborating closely with an advisory committee of artists, curators, performers, arts educators, and art organization executives, BARCO has created a totally new concept for community arts development, engagement, and yes, making history.

We would like to thank our funders for their continued support.
