Baltimore Love Project
Baltimore artist Michael Owen created the above design of four silhouette hands spelling out “love.” It has since been painted on 20 different walls all through Baltimore as the “Baltimore Love Project.” The artist explains:
This project is not intended to change the world. However, we know that these murals have the power to inspire change, if just through small, tangible acts of love from one to another. We hope a man is moved to pick up flowers for his girlfriend or a mother reconsiders hitting her child for a night. In order to assist in these expressions, the Baltimore Love Project remains an open-ended project, where we will look to individuals and communities for their responses.
