BALTIMORE (WNEW/AP) — An art project in Baltimore that would bring murals to blighted neighborhoods is causing some controversy.
WJZ-TV reports the mural project called “Love Letter to Baltimore” would spend nearly $50,000 to create from five to ten murals.
But while the mayor has voiced her support for the project, the president of the city council calls it a waste of money.
One giant mural near East Eager Avenue is a preview of the project. It’s a mural painted on homes that will be torn down starting next month.
Officials are set to vote on funding the project next week.
