Baltimore City Paper

Bomb the Waverly Giant

We doubt very much you'd win a mural contest with a proposal to bomb the Waverly Giant supermarket with graffiti--what'd you think we meant?--but if you think you could work with the theme "Past, Present, and Future," by all means download the application form from the Baltimore Office of Promotion and Arts web site (look for the "Arts Council" link) and get yor proposal in by Feb. 28. Or you can call (410) 752-8632. The sponsors of the contest--the Better Waverly Community and the Baltimore Mural Program--are offering artists (you gotta be 18, sorry) $1,000 and $2,500 to cover a few wide-open spots on their building at the corner of Old York Road and 33rd Street. There's quite a lot of space to work with, especially the wall facing Old York, so come up with something cool, eh? We're big fans of public art here, particularly of the homegrown variety, and always ready to praise deserving artists . . . for what it's worth.
