Over the past five years Charm City Streets has taken you on regular photo tours of art in public spaces. We have visited Baltimore’s neighborhoods; the DC Metropolitan area; Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan; Miami; parts of the Midwest and Pacific Northwest; and, even Germany. Together we have walked hundreds of miles up and down city streets and alleyways; watched artists live painting during art festivals, mural projects, and paint jams; and, explored abandoned buildings such as a Cold War spy station in Berlin, Germany. Along the way we have encountered incredible graffiti writers and street artists.
