WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … the latest Arts+Parks mural Nether has created in the Bocek Park community

Spring training must have started early this year, because Baltimore artists and writers all hit triples this month.

Noteworthy are the three (yes, I said three) attention-grabbing murals Nether created this month as part of his on-going Arts+Parks project in the Bocek Park community. The wildlife, flowers, marble stoops, rowhouses, carpenters, gardeners, and portraits of neighborhood residents symbolize and illustrate the cultural heritage of this community in East Baltimore. Here you see Nether in action on the corner of E Monument Street and N Decker Street:

Next up at bat … the incomparable Reed Bmore who fashioned three wire sculptures: a snowflake, a fun-loving cloud boy, and the frog king.

Saved from the wrecking ball! These two pieces by Achue and Heav(e) may likely be the last of new artwork at an abandoned warehouse soon slated for demolition.

I admire the simplicity of these older end-to-end throws by Busboy, Hazel and Stamp found in the Remington neighborhood.
