There are more than 300 artworks created through the Baltimore Mural Program. Street art has changed Baltimore's landscape with portraits of city life and African-American history. When the outside of a building serves as a canvas, it's as if the neighborhood transforms into an open-air museum. Local artists and citizens use street art to beautify vacant lots and buildings, advocate forjustice, and spark dialogue about race and social conflict. Hundreds of Baltimore’s murals are legal works — sponsored by city-affiliated organizations and nonprofits. Others, under the umbrella "street art," are unsanctioned, often unsigned pieces.
This series uses projection photography---a technique that originated in the 1960s with the work of John French, in which photographic images were projected onto a model. This series projects photos of several of the Baltimore murals onto a model, Dafne, using a mini-beamer. In this series, Dafne walks through the walls, figuratively, to share the messages that the street artists of Baltimore have offered the world.
