WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … Richie Rich finds himself in a precarious position – wire sculpture by Reed Bmore

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.

Siek and @clarkzilla created So Fresh, So Clean … a spectacular full wall featuring one cool rubber ducky. You can see this dope piece near Mondawmin Mall.

In Graffiti Alley, graff artist Bones created a dope Mother’s Day piece; penguins waddled on in and other avian critters fluttered by; and, there were several nice pieces whose writers Charm City Streets could not identify.
