B'MORE BIRDS: York Corridor Mural Initiative 

As part of Baltimore's 1% for Public Art Program, the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts hired community artist Iandry Randriamandroso to design and paint 5 original murals of native Baltimore birds. Those murals can now be found along York Road between 43rd street and Glenwood Avenue.

Community stakeholders including the York Road Partnership and the Govanstowne Business Association chose the local birds as the subjects of the murals due to their universality, inclusiveness, and connection to the local environment. 

Oriole: 4333 York Road on Riley's Beauty 

Some words from the artist: "In ever changing urban landscapes, they [the birds]  represent adaptation, resilience, and the continuation of life. When changes occur in a neighborhood, it will change the dynamic make- up of the population- new inhabitants come; some leave; some stay and adapt with the new changes. Eventually, they represent us and our neighbors". 

On October 17th, the murals were officially introduced to the community with an afternoon of mural tours, bird-related crafts, art for sale, great weather, and an opportunity to meet the artist.
