Baltimore Love Project: expresses love by connecting people and communities across Baltimore City through love themed murals.
A few years ago, local artist Michael Owen, developed a design of four hands spelling out the word love. (see above graphic) Now this image will be painted on 20 walls, spread evenly across the communities of Baltimore City. The murals will be identical in regards to content, only ranging in size.
This project is not intended to change the world. However, we know that these murals have the power to inspire change, if just through small, tangible acts of love from one to another. We hope a man is moved to pick up flowers for his girlfriend or a mother reconsiders hitting her child for a night. In order to assist in these expressions, the Baltimore Love Project remains an open-ended project, where we will look to individuals and communities for their responses.
