In a rapidly vacating city, street art makes Baltimore beautiful.
We will establish street art as a sub culture and focus on two characters in the Baltimore wheat pasting scene with additional footage of supporting voices. Many street artists in Baltimore are interested in the various effects of street art, ranging from beautification/gentrification of an area to simple public egotism. By analyzing the different types of street art through the eyes of wheat pasters, we will look at how street art has changed Baltimore neighborhoods, as well as legal versus illegal postings and what effects they have on a community.
