July was a hectic month, both personally and art wise. I spent the first couple of weeks visiting family in Seattle and the last week or so getting the house ready to go on the market. Our daughters and grandchildren now live in Seattle, so my wife and I have decided to move to the Emerald City. Despite all the hustle and bustle, I made time to photograph the latest art in Baltimore’s public spaces. Of course, it took me until the end of August before I had time to process the images. Thank you for your patience.

Headlining today’s post … Cheshire Cat by Reed Bmore

While driving the other day along North Howard Street near the armory, I suddenly heard Tweedy Bird saying: I tawt I taw a puddy tat! I did! From a wire high overhead, the Cheshire Cat smiled serenely down upon passing motorists. Twas no advertisement for a performance of Alice in Wonderland; rather, the latest wire sculpture by Bawlmer’s incomparable Reed Bmore.

Headlining today’s post … Rath by @heavylox

Climate scientists have concluded global warming, if left unchecked, will cause sea levels to rise. Verifiable scientific data indicates rising sea levels would inundate large areas of New York City and the boroughs by the turn of the century.

In a recent peer reviewed article in Squirrelly Scientific Amurican, scientists concerned about graffiti’s impact on global warming requested the public’s assistance with their investigation. Alarmed by all the dire warnings, Charm City Streets submitted documentation to these scientists. You need not file a Freedom of Information Act request to review this documentation. Charm City Streets now openly shares its information with you.
