BALTIMORE — The Pennsylvania Avenue Black Arts and Entertainment District hosted a brand launch, Sunday afternoon.

With a new logo displayed, you will soon be seeing new signs along Pennsylvania Avenue.

The event was followed by a celebration for the public. There was $1 skating and bowling at the Shake and Bake Family Fun Center.

"Everything we're doing is about giving back to the community. We're looking to revitalize the Pennsylvania Avenue corridor in partnership with Historic Pennsylvania Avenue Main Street and the local CDC's in the area. I think that for us, we know the legacy of Pennsylvania Avenue and we know what it can be if given a little love and some capital. So, for us, it's really about how we can activate the avenue and really show the potential that's here. So, we can start to build out the corridor to what it used to be," Brion Gill, of Pennsylvania Avenue Black arts & Entertainment District.

On July 1st, legislation went into effect designating the Pennsylvania Avenue corridor as Maryland’s first black arts and entertainment district, uniquely designed to celebrate African American cultural productions in Baltimore.
