A MURDER OF MURALS

Headlining today’s post … what big, sharp, numerous teeth you have by Shark Toof

There are numerous fascinating collective nouns for birds such as a commotion of coots, a conspiracy of ravens, a grumbling of wild turkeys, and a squabble of gulls. I bring this to your attention because there must be a more interesting even spellbinding phrase to describe a collection of street art pieces – rather than simply saying murals. I propose paraphrasing the collective noun for crows and say a murder of murals. Before there is any grumbling or squabbling or calling me an old coot, one has to agree the images below clearly demonstrate the artists walloped those walls and set them aflame. In a word, they murdered these murals.

JERSEY FRESH JAM 2017

Legendary – that single word is the appropriate way to describe Jersey Fresh Jam 2017 which Charm City Streets attended this past weekend. Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival. Each year artists, DJs, graff writers and musicians from up and down the Mid-Atlantic come together in Trenton to celebrate Hip Hop culture. The tunes are unforgettable, and the artwork is stupendous.

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.

Two years ago, JMZ Walls began. It shares a similar belief with The Bushwick Collective, that is, street art has a positive influence on a neighborhood and benefits both local community members and tourists alike.

Centered around the Myrtle Avenue-Broadway Station (which the J, M and Z subway lines share), you will find an open air gallery of rich, imaginative murals created by prominent artists from Brooklyn and the four corners of the globe.
