Headlining today’s post … Father and son by Martin Swift

Local, regional and international artists gathered May 5th–13th in DC’s NoMa neighborhood for the third annual Pow! Wow! DC mural festival.

A Chinese dragon, a host of spirit animals and golden characters, an endearing father and child, a gigantic chameleon, and more lined the stretch of the Metropolitan Branch Trail between R Street NE and New York Avenue NE. Charm City Streets captured much of the artistic action along this outdoor art gallery.

Headlining today’s post … an evening twilight view of the new mural by Jeff Huntington

Last week, world-renowned artist Jeff Huntington was in Baltimore painting a stunning new mural in Wilson Alley, near the corner of Park Avenue and W Franklin Street. The mural depicts a Chinese dragon and the Conquering Lion of Judah slithering their way in and out of the building’s windows. These symbols honor the neighborhood’s past and present. Over 30 years ago, the neighborhood was Baltimore’s vibrant Chinatown. Nowadays, the area is home to a thriving Ethiopian community.
