WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … West by West

Through April 21st the phenomenal Light City festival is in full swing all around the Inner Harbor and Harboreast neighborhood. This is the only event of its size and scope in the United States, so be sure to check their website for the full schedule of events.

The frenetic pace of creativity continued unabated all around Baltimore as evidenced by the large number of fresh artwork Charm City Streets encountered by mid-April.

Several of Bmore’s well-established writers demonstrated their aerosol mastery this month:

Rezist-ance is futile!

Charm City Streets came across a treasure trove of dope older burners thanks to a tip from another well-known Baltimore writer:

Deaf and Rech have a couple of burners along Bmore’s highways (no break in traffic yet to photograph them) as well as these rollers along I-83 in the Woodberry area.

Charm City Streets will be on hiatus for the next several weeks. We have German friends visiting and a daughter moving cross country. The goal is to catch up on and document all the art in public spaces starting again in mid-May.
