Headlining today’s post … Again climbed lofty heights again!

Prior to its grand opening, Baltimore’s dynamic Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn created one of their signature murals on Union Craft Brewing in the new Union Collective at 1700 W. 41st Street in the Hampden-Medfield neighborhood. Their use of color, shape and pattern is striking. The closer you approach the mural the more intriguing the patterns and shapes within patterns and shapes becomes. You gotta check out this fascinating mural … and enjoy all that the Union Collective will soon have to offer.
