Reed Bmore was busy this month fashioning a super wire sculpture of Mario chasing Toad and Christmas presents across Light Street. In addition, an angelic child dressed in winter wear (but minus shoes) flew in the heavens above the intersection of Greenmount and North Avenue.

While driving through East Baltimore, Charm City Streets discovered an inspiring mural Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn conceived and crafted several years ago for the Baltimore Mural Program. Speaking of murals and BOPA, be sure to visit the exhibit Beautiful Walls for Baltimore at the School 33 Art Center (1427 Light Street). You have until January 30, 2016 to see and experience this celebration of the 40th anniversary of BOPA’s Mural Program.
