Screen Painting: A tradition that will never die
By Cherie Duvall

Some traditions don't last forever, but some artists refuse to let an art form unique to Baltimore be forgotten.

At one time, when you walked down the streets of Highlandtown, Canton, Fell's Point or any other neighborhood that encompassed East Baltimore, you would see rows of brightly painted windows and doors. But behind those creations lie great history.

Screen painting, a unique Baltimore tradition that dates back to 1913, is unfortunately not going strong. In fact, few Baltimore residents have even heard of the art form that boomed from the 1920s to 1940s. But there are a few artists that are making sure this East Baltimore phenomenon stays alive.

"I don't believe screen painting is a dying art, " said Stacey Grabowski, an artist from New Jersey who has been painting screens for six years in Canton. "Even though the younger people moving into the area don't see the charm and usefulness, I love having my front door screen painted and I hope others will too in the future."

Grabowski, as well as other Baltimorean artists such as Tom Lipka who have been around to see the city's changes, know best. Even though your walk through East Baltimore may be different from those in the past, the tradition still lives on. You too can be part of the tradition.

  • avatar How much does a Vegas club make on a Saturday night?
    • This is a largely subjective question, as certain clubs are much larger or more popular than others.
      Unfortunately, the big Las Vegas resort companies with public stock/debt (e.g., Wynn Resorts, MGM Resorts, Las Vegas Sands) typically don't break out food & beverage operations on a per-property basis in their public filings.
      A couple of publications, however, conduct surveys which offer a few clues. One in particular is Nightclub & Bar, who publishes an annual list of the Top 100 Nightclubs in the U.S., based on revenue:
