A Guide to Public Art in Baltimore

Arguably, Baltimore has the longest history of any city in the nation of supporting public art. Nicknamed the Monumental City after erecting the first monument honoring President Washington in 1823, Baltimore has carried forward its legacy of using public art to promote civic pride through the decades, becoming the second city in the US to pass a 1% for Art law in 1964. This list highlights a few favorites among the ~1,000 works of public art that color the cityscape. Cover Image - Rainbow Road in Graffiti Alley - Image Courtesy of Baltimurals
