Join Liz Miller for an energizing walk to hear the stories behind the murals in Station North with almost 60 featured artworks!
About this event
Spanning the neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay, Station North is a diverse collection of artist live-work spaces, galleries, rowhomes, businesses, and murals.
Open Walls Baltimore kick started Station North's reputation for world-class murals, curated by muralist and street artist Gaia in 2012 and 2014. Join us to walk through Graffiti Alley, hear the stories of how these murals got painted and learn about newer murals in the district!
We'll learn about the major players behind the mural art pieces and the movements which aided in their funding. Tour goers will understand the components involved in producing a mural, as well as the questionable legalities.
Our meeting point will be 9am at a local coffee shop, Milk and Honey on 10 E Lanvale, and we will end there at noon.
