painting the street

Race Street in Cambridge MD has a new street mural reflecting the Black Lives Matter movement. In the words of project manager Shelton Hawkins “I wanted to make sure the right people got the credit for doing so a great job, all I did was get paint on my shoes.

First I wanted to think Miriam Moran for listening to her heart and coming up with such a dope design. I have always known your talent is one of a kind and I hope after this project people understand how talented you really are.

Second I wanted to thank Adrian Green Holmes, Jermaine Anderson and Barb Seese for the ability to pull people together and keep doing amazing things for the community. It’s been five years since we last worked together and it felt like we didn’t miss a beat. I could never thank y’all enough for believing in me as an artist.

Third I wanted to thank the people of Cambridge for coming out to help paint, tape, draw, sweep the roads, played music or just being there to keep the energy high.

This is really great example of a “Community Project”. I will forever be proud that I was a part of the team that stood up and took a risk TOGETHER. People of all colors and backgrounds came together and it was such a beautiful thing.

S/o to the good people at Sherwin Williams for donating the paint also Mayor Jackson and the other city council members for allowing us to be a part of such a great project”. The extraordinary part? It happened in just three days.
