When Jess Pfohl tells me something awesome is going down, I pay attention. That girl only knows the best and most talented peeps. So when she hit me up and said that one of her friends was going to be creating a mural on the side of The Roxy, I knew I had to be a part of saving the magic. It became even more evident how special this mural was when I met the artist, Michael Owen. The LOVE mural is a tribute for Lauren Freeman, a young lady from Baltimore who was killed in a hit and run in 2010 outside of the Roxy Theater. Her family and friends came to watch Michael paint the mural.
Michael Owen created the Baltimore Love Project to bring communities together by spreading love through street art. & he is doing that.
