Touching up the outer blue ring at Reservoir Hill's new Chesapeake Bay-themed street mural (5/25/12) When we last gave a street mural update, it was a gray, stormy day in Reservoir Hill. It took three more date changes, a bunch of extra paint canisters, and a lot of frozen popsicles, but on a very hot Friday afternoon we finally finished a new Chesapeake Bay-themed street mural at the intersection of Lennox St. and Brookfield Ave.
Thanks to Maryland Institute College of Art's "Design for Change" class, Reservoir Hill Mutual Homes, John Eager Howard Recreation Center, and Blue Water Baltimore, there are now crabs and fish swimming in the street, with waves lapping nearby. Our hope is that a brighter, more visually engaging intersection will make Reservoir Hill a healthier place for our nearby aquatic neighbors in the Chesapeake Bay as well for our neighborhood children walking to and from John Eager Howard Recreation Center.
[Editor's note: Apologies for the lack of recent blog posts, but, as you'll see in the upcoming posts, a quiet blog means we were too busy outside with lots of projects!]
