The cutting-edge art that’s known as graffiti often gets overlooked for its innate artistic expression for one obvious reason: it’s illegal. What some consider art, others consider vandalism. In the city of Baltimore, up to $300,000 in taxpayer dollars go toward cleaning up graffiti each year. Graffiti Warehouse and adjacent Graffiti Alley have set out to alleviate this financial burden without squashing creativity.
Street artists can come to the warehouse and alley to create their masterpieces on massive canvases. Most are up for sale, but you’re welcome to just come and browse, too. Swing by to check out the towering works of colorful art or attend one of the regular events at Graffiti Warehouse. As long as the space isn’t reserved for a photo shoot or a music video shoot, there’s usually something on the itinerary for the public.
