The Open Walls Baltimore project, curated by local muralist Gaia, has assembled an impressive gathering of talent including Jaz from Argentina, MOMO from New Orleans, Vhils from Portugal, Interesni Kazki from Ukraine, Swoon and John Ahearn from New York, and Sten and Lex from Italy. In just two months, 23 murals were installed in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. Reflecting on his giant mural of an elephant and Cape Town (located at Lafayette and Charles), artist Freddy Sam says: “Color creates energy, energy creates inspiration, and inspiration creates change. It is our responsibility to inspire ourselves to inspire others to inspire the change. Art is the remedy for this.”
