After touring Brooklyn, Charm City Streets boarded the L Line and spent two days in Lower Manhattan in search of new and new-to-me murals.
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.
Richmond is a great place to visit: magnificent architecture, delicious restaurants to suit every palate, easy to navigate and walk about, welcoming atmosphere, a noteworthy mile-long canal park, and it is only a 3 hour drive from Baltimore. All in all it is an ideal weekend destination.
Several days ago Charm City Streets returned from a week-long photo tour of Art Basel 2016. The streets and avenues in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami were chock full of phenomenal murals by renowned street artists, dope graffiti pieces by masterful writers, galleries containing even more incredible artwork, and much more.
Today’s edition of What’s Up on Charm City Streets covers the month of April, 2015.
