Baltimore’s Barclay Street Beauty

For the first time in a quite a while, I had the opportunity to just relax on an actual day off.  While running errands and trying to track down a small piece of architecture that is supposedly a standing remnant of the International League Baltimore Orioles’s home, the original Oriole Park in Northeast Baltimore, I found some more of Baltimore’s amazing public art pieces that I am so fond of and write about so often.

These are all on Barclay street in the neighborhood of Greenmount West. 1800 block and below to be precise. These pieces are just so great and I wanted to share them.Barclayart2

This little one is fun! BarclayYawningSee! It’s an awning that’s yawning! Some nifty photo-realism going on here.

This next one is great. Malcolm X, Nina Simone and James Baldwin. That rendering of Baldwin is spot on. BarclayArtBaldwinI’m off again tomorrow so stay tuned!

I'm one nifty dude who is fascinated by his hometown; Baltimore, MD. It is persistently beautiful and ugly and I wish to live nowhere else ever again.
