Community Art Project, 4500 Harford Road on May 16

Message from Toby Rivkin about another community art project taking place at 4500 Harford Road on May 16 from 1-3pm with a rain date on May 23.

Hi neighbors! We had so much fun working on the mural that went up on the Chameleon wall last year, we are planning another mural making opportunity and everyone is invited, as always! And it's free!

Here's the background: Healthcare for the Homeless has commissioned a mural for their 25 ' x 108 ' wall, visible from the downtown Sunday market and also visible from the Jones Falls Expressway. The plan is to paint parachute cloth panels, which will later be adhered to the building similar to the way wallpaper is hung. The images on the mural come from sketches and paintings rendered by clients and staff of HCH.

Communities all over Baltimore will share in a kind of paint-by-numbers experience to paint some of the many, many 5' x 4' panels, and we will see our handiwork permanently displayed on the HCH building on Fallsway! Jay Wolf Schlossberg-Cohen is the director of the project, and we have invited him to lead us in a two hour fun session of mural painting at the lot at the Market Connection.

No previous experience needed! Just a willingness to take direction in painting the mural with lots of bright colors! If you have a 6 foot table you can bring, that could be helpful! We need 25 people to commit to working from 1-3pm on Sunday May 16. If you are interested, please contact me, Toby Rivkin, at!
This should be loads of fun! We even have a raindate for the following Sunday!
