  • This is awesome! Are these works generally commissioned, or do the artists offer to do them ‘pro-bono’? We have a blank side of our rowhouse that our landlord says he wouldn’t mind a mural on….

      A little of both. There’s a lot of grant money out there for artists to work with though, so that they can get paid and the homeowner doesn’t have to completely foot the bill.

        Any idea where I can find out more about this? Our row of houses is facing a blank wall and some condos going up on our block could also benefit from that same wall having a mural.

  • Beautiful murals, but the owner of this building isn’t the best neighbor. These buildings are major eye sores. Hope they are gettting hit with the vacant and blighted tax rate.

  • For those that asked, Blind Whino actively seeks out areas for their artists to paint murals.

  • Indeed beautiful mural! I’ve always been curious about this building itself. It looks like it could be such a great space for something – just wondering what it used to be, and what’s in store for its future.

    • It used to be a warehouse for a vending machine company, and apparently it was sold with the intent to redevelop (i.e. tear down and rebuild) into multi-family housing.
