June was a busy month. Like wildflowers in a meadow, colorful new artwork popped up and blanketed the city.
Well-known artist Jeff Huntington returned to Baltimore this month to create a dramatic large-scale mural on the Key Highway side of Anthem House. The mural features three prominent figures in Baltimore’s history: Edgar Allan Poe, Francis Scott Key, and Billie Holiday.
High above the Penn North neighborhood Richie Rich is in a precarious position from which he seemingly cannot escape. Sculptor Reed Bmore has been busy gracing Philly and Richmond with his wire art, but fortunate for us he found time to create this thought-provoking sculpture for his home town.
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.
