In August 2016, Buenos Aires Street Art travelled to Baltimore, Maryland to organise a series of murals around the city for Argentine street artist Alfredo Segatori.
Together with Section1 Project, Buenos Aires Street Art organised a huge mural painted by Alfredo Segatori and Pablo Machioli on the wall of a former tyre factory near the Jones Falls Expressway in Baltimore.
The artwork features a portrait of a prehistoric man relating to the gallery show ‘Roots/Raices’ curated by Buenos Aires Street Art, Section1 Project and Gallery 788.
Another project included two new murals of homeless people at the historic Hollywood Diner in on East Saratoga Street.
The Hollywood Diner became famous after being featured in the classic 1982 movie Diner directed by Barry Levison. The movie starred Mickey Rourke, Kevin Bacon and Ellen Barkin.
The second mural at the diner featured another homeless man named Joe who attends the local soup kitchen.
BA Street Art also organised a project for Alfredo Segatori to paint a classic U.S. school bus. The vehicle is owned by Stacey Chambers whose and has been turned into a vintage clothing store from which she runs her business called Gogo’s.
