Art celebrating Billie Holiday (200 block of Durham Street, Upper Fell’s Point, Baltimore. April 5th, 2014)

I always admired the beautiful Billie Holiday mural and mosaic on the corner of Pratt and Durham whenever I drove by, and even stopped once to show them to my kids.  So yesterday I decided to take the time to appreciate them.  What I hadn’t realized was that, in addition to the mural and mosaic seen from the corner, there are many other works of art celebrating her memory, down the block (between Pratt and Gough Streets).  It’s all part of the “S. Durham Billie Holiday Project”, launched last year, which also includes painted window screens and streetscaping.

Coincidentally, tomorrow (April 7th) is Billie Holiday’s 99th birthday, and yesterday there was a public celebration there, which I had just missed.  Next year’s 100th birthday promises to be epic!

Born in Philadelphia, Billie Holiday (1915-1959) grew up on this block (houses 217 and 219) in Baltimore (from where her mother originally was), before moving to Harlem, New York, in 1929. [Wikipedia]

Play Ball: Joan Jett Talks Orioles 2014 Season →

baltimoreorless:

[Punk icon Joan Jett grew up in Rockville, Md., and has been an O’s fan since the very first game she attended on August 13, 1969, when Jim Palmer threw a no-hitter against the Oakland A’s (Joan: “So how can you not be an Orioles freak after seeing that for the first game?”). Jett was a guest…

Baltimore Streetcar Museum
It was nice to catch the museum when they were closed but the employees were working.  The streetcars are kept in working order and there was a lot of activity at the site.
