Breathing New Life into Public Spaces with Open Walls Baltimore

For more photos and videos from Open Walls Baltimore as it unfolds, browse the #OpenWallsBaltimore and #OWB2 hashtags.

The second annual Open Walls Baltimore is underway in Maryland, USA.

Held in the Station North district (@stationnorth) of the capital city, Open Walls stands as a celebration of street art as more than 20 artists from around the world gather in Baltimore to create large-scale murals in an effort to revitalize public spaces and bring art and color to the local neighborhood. A series of lectures and events also accompanies the cadence of painting until the initiative’s concluding celebration on May 25.

Among the art in progress, street artist escif (@escif) recently completed a much-discussed mural entitled LOOKS MUCH BETTER NOW!, a massive, classic yellow smiley face that brightens up its dilapidated surroundings.

Baltimore street artist Gaia (@gaiastreetart) serves as curator for the event, as well contributing artwork of his own to the walls.

Exploring Tai O (大澳), Hong Kong’s Traditional Fishing Village

To see more photos and videos of Tai O, explore the Tai O 大澳 and Tai O Market 大澳街巿 location pages.

Known locally as “the Venice of Hong Kong,” Tai O (大澳) is a small fishing village which straddles the waters between the west coast of Lantau Island and a smaller island just 15 meters (49 feet) away. The village is known for its waterfront establishments and traditional way of life. Most notably, Tai O is home to the oldest remaining community of stilt houses, once common across all of Hong Kong.

For over two centuries, the village has been home to the Tanka people, formerly a nomadic southern Chinese ethnic group. Since then until the mid-1900s, the village became a major trading port to China, exporting salt and seafood. Though Tai O is no longer a key site for trade, many elderly residents of the village continue to make a living from fishing, duck farming and making the village’s famous salted fish and shrimp paste, all of which can be found in the main Tai O Market. Tourists from mainland China and Hong Kong visit Tai O to see the slow, unchanging lifestyle of the old seaside village—a sight that has become increasingly rare in their rapidly developing home countries.
