Baltimore’s African American murals are becoming a regular fixture at city buildings, from public spaces like the Baltimore Ravens stadium to private businesses like the City Hall Annex.
This mural is a prime example of Baltimore’s burgeoning urban renewal, which is attracting artists from across the city to the city, and bringing in artisans who work with local businesses to create more contemporary murals.
It’s an effort that’s gaining momentum as the city prepares for the 2020 Summer Olympics.
The mural at City Hall is the largest of its kind in the city and was created by a group of black artists.
“It is very personal to me.
It is a very personal moment in my life.
I’m a black woman and I’m very much trying to help people in the community and to make a difference,” said Sarah Wylie, a black artist who has been creating murals since she was a teenager.
Baltimore has a long history of mural-building.
The city has been home to the earliest known mural in America, which was made in 1888.
Today, Baltimore’s murals have become a major tourist attraction.
In recent years, Baltimore has been ranked as the nation’s number one destination for art and sculpture, with visitors spending $2.6 billion last year alone.
But the murals that have made the most waves have also become a contentious issue.
For the past few years, the Baltimore City Council has considered legislation to ban the installation of new murals in public spaces.
In December, the council voted to pass a measure that would ban the use of any “offensive or inappropriate” materials in public art or public space, such as the City Council’s mural.
While the bill was a significant step forward, it was still opposed by some city residents.
Several local businesses have also been vocal against the ban, arguing that the city’s mural ban will hurt tourism, which the city relies on to survive.
However, Wylies mural has already been approved for its current location on City Hall Plaza, and the city is now looking at other murals to replace it, like one of a group that includes artists like Jodi Lewis and Maya Moore.
I want to thank all the artists and all the people that have put their time into this, Wynies said.
The murals will be up for public comment from June 18 to June 27.
