Baltimore City will add a murals program as a clean-up initiative to help beautify the city. This could be a potentially great idea as neighboring cities such as Philadelphia have received national acclaim for their mural anti-graffiti programs as detailed in one of this blog's first post.
Hopefully their will be more public art in the city that will truly showcase the culture of it's residents. Here's an excerpt from the Baltimore Sun:
"Promising to transform drab, concrete walls into colorful displays of public art, Baltimore officials said yesterday that the city will commission 20 murals this summer -- more than double the number painted in past years."
