Area 405 Hosts Opening Night Celebration for Open Walls Baltimore

April 4, 2012

Join the artists behind Open Walls Baltimore, a new street-art project in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District, for an opening night celebration titled She Had Style, She Had Grace.

The murals now forming on North Avenue or off St. Paul Street, spanning the length of several storefronts and creeping up the sides of garages and apartment buildings, are the result of a city-supported project that invites artists from around the world to create outdoor murals in the district. Over 20 artists, including Maya Hayuk and Gaia, are participating.

And at least some of them will come together for a night of “drinks, décor, atmosphere, and attitudes exploring the balance between working hard and playing hard,” according to the event’s Facebook page. Hosted by Ellen Degenerate with music by DJ Mark Brown, the night will play off of several different themes including beauty, business, and success, and will feature a Baltimore versus Philadelphia dance battle, featuring members of the Baltimore Experimental Dance Collective and Effervescent Collective vs Club Lyfestile.

She Had Style, She Had Grace takes place on Friday, April 13 at 8 p.m. at Area 405,  405 E. Oliver St. Tickets are $3.
