Redefining Industry recognizes and celebrates extraordinary individuals who are redefining industry and pointing the way to a positive future for Baltimore. Honorees’ work is grounded in Baltimore’s impressive and complex industrial past and yet it is thoroughly modern. With creativity, commitment, and grit, they are contributing to the economic and social vibrancy of Baltimore and beyond.  

The exhibition, installed along the museum’s Key Highway fence at the junction with Lawrence Street, is now open to the public and free of charge to view.
