This mural, created with acrylic and spray paint, is a celebration of the #BaltimoreArtist of all stripes: the #Singer, #Actor, #Musician, #Painter, #Filmmaker, #Photographer, #Writer, #Dancer and #PerformanceArtist.
The mural pays homage to the majority of artists who struggle in obscurity, facing hardships in order to express themselves creatively and achieve their dreams.
One of the most unique aspects of this mural is its perspective. You observe the scene as though lying on the ground, looking up at buildings, trees and people looming over you from all sides in a distorted way, some appearing upside down or sideways. The title, “Love in Search of a Word,” is taken from a poem by Sidney Lanier, a musician and poet buried across the street from the mural in #GreenmountCemetery.
