New Graffiti Murals Added to Industrial Properties in Carroll-Camden

| August 27, 2020 | 0 Comments

Adam Berg, who owns a couple of properties in Carroll-Camden Industrial Area, met some graffiti artists who were looking to find walls for murals. They told Berg they were experienced artists and were looking for a canvas.

The artists, who Berg said wish to remain anonymous, were willing to do the murals for free and said they wanted to come back each year to redo them. Berg liked the idea and said the artists could use walls on his properties. His only rule was they had to keep it positive.

Berg owns Berg Recycling at 1401 W. Hamburg St. and an adjacent industrial park at 1415 Bush St. which is the home of Middleton & Meads and GranTurk. Berg Recycling is surrounded on three sides by building facades and block walls. The artists put murals on all of these walls. 1415 Bush St. has an office building and Berg allowed a mural on a concrete wall on the facade.

The murals at Berg Recycling feature different tags and nods to Baltimore such as crabs, Edgar Allen Poe, a Raven, and a can that looks like Old Bay. At 1415 Bush St. the artists put up a mural of Willie Adams who was a prominent Baltimore businessman known for bankrolling many African American-owned businesses in the mid-1900s.

One additional graffiti mural was added to a block wall on the Ellicott Dredges property at 1611 Bush St.
