Axis Alley Images

Book Bombs spent the day in Axis Alley, transforming the rear of 2212 N. Calvert Street in Baltimore. Michelle sweeps the stairs, above, in preparation for wheatpasting.

Our cut denim paper, made from donated old jeans, was installed amongst a couple of paintings from the Fall 2009 Axis Alley installations.

The paper was cut into the shapes of endangered plant species native to the Baltimore area, such as Virginia mallow and Striped gentian.

Nearby properties will be transformed by other artists in the coming weeks. If you are within hailing distance of Baltimore, please consider coming by for the opening alley walk on May 23, late afternoon. And hope for good weather!
