Hundreds showed up at the Contemporary museums exhibit at the historic Hutzler Palace Building.

Will Hutzler’s become Baltimore’s new hipster haven?

The first floor of the historic Hutzler Brothers Palace Building has been transformed into a temporary museum with Saturday’s opening of “The Ground,” a three-month exhibit of work by artist Michael Jones McKean.

The Hutzler Building

The Hutzler Brothers Palace Building on Howard Street hasn’t been open to shoppers for nearly three decades, and many Baltimoreans have never been inside.

But visitors will get a chance to see the historic department store starting this week when The Contemporary museum opens an exhibit there in collaboration with the building operator, AiNET.
