MCS Students Visit "Graffiti Alley" in Baltimore

Graffiti alley is a place in Baltimore where graffiti artists are allowed to put up their work. The neighborhood around it, which is also home to Red Emma's where we had our poetry and activism  workshop, has a number of buildings which were going to be demolished but instead became the canvass for public art. There are large murals decorating many buildings and bringing art to the public.

From Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts:
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts have announced CityPaint.  This initiative will decorate Baltimore City with numerous murals. As part of the Cleaner, Greener Baltimore program, the city is partnering with neighborhood groups, community organizations, artists and corporations for CityPaint.

Even though we didn't see these, here are some examples:
