John Waters Portrait - 2011

Each year in Baltimore, MD the streets of the Station North arts district are transformed into an outdoor art festival. Artscape is the largest free art festival in the country! In 2011 I had the opportunity to particiapte in a themed street project all about roadside attractions. This nearly 12' tall portrait of John Waters was the world's largest at the time and I believe it still holds the record.
