What: Graffiti Alley
Where: Howard Street and W 19, Baltimore MD
When: Whenever (better in day time)
One of the first places I visited when coming to Baltimore was Graffiti Alley. A quirky professor took my class and me on a day long trip around Baltimore, and luckily, Graffiti Alley was one of the destinations. Located near MICA, this small alley offers some very eclectic and colorful Graffiti. It is all artfully done with precision and thought; it is haven for many artists and photographers. While I was visiting a small group was in the process of a photo-shoot– using the alley as their backdrop. Although it didn’t always maintain the best reputation, it is now an artist’s retreat for bright creativity and street art.
Stop by Graffiti Alley and be sure to take a bunch of pictures for the gram! It is completely free and open to all who simply just want to appreciate some very cool art!
