体验内容

Our meeting point will be a local coffee/ice cream shop, with an innovative approach to ice cream! We will walk to many points of interest, including murals, arts organizations, public art sculptures, as well as a local restaurants which have been around for 100 years. This tour will reveal the tightly knit fabric of this working class community in which these murals went up. Located at the edge of Greektown, this town was founded by a single man who was asked to create this town by the mayor of Baltimore, to which he dragged his boat to the top of the centrally located hill and began this strange quest of settling the land to the east of Baltimore. We will 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 putting a mural up, as well as the questionable legalities.
We will also delve into the history of ‘painted screens’ a community art form specific to Highland town. It originated here and is sustained through this community.
Other things to note
This walk can be a bit warm due to lack of trees on this tour. Dress smart with clothing that breathes and be sure you can remove layers. Sunglasses, fans, hats, ice water, gatorade can greatly aid in the comfort during certain weather. Also consider grabbing ice cream at a nearby shop to cool off.

Hello! I’m Liz and welcome to Bmore! My love affair with the art of Bawl-mer (Baltimore) started 15 years ago when I transplanted here from Michigan. The artistically inclined daughter of a professional illustrator, I was immediately taken with the arts hub of station north. Living here, I was able to witness firsthand the birth of these astounding murals. Professional hip hop choreographer, teaching artist in west baltimore and a grad student at Maryland Institute College of Art (a top-ten art school) uniquely qualifies me to share about how public art revitalizes a city and enriches us all.

Liz’s mural tour was amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable about Baltimore and the artists. She kept us engaged the entire time and exposed us to a part of the city that I would have never known about. I will check out her other tours as well!!
