More murals are already starting to pop up around Station North Arts & Entertainment District, including the one pictured, which was created by Gaia himself. Several of the artists are from Baltimore, while others come from as far as Peru and Poland.

The community art project began in 2012 with 20 murals, and 15 more are coming during round two. Check out a map of the murals and keep your eyes open the next time you're in the neighborhood.
