The Baltimore Love Project expresses love by connecting people and communities across Baltimore City through love themed murals.
A few years ago, local artist Michael Owen developed a design of four hands spelling out the word love. (see above graphic) Now this image will be painted on 20 walls, spread evenly across the communities of Baltimore City. The murals will be identical in regards to content, only ranging in size.
