The Orioles today announced plans for the latest mural installations as part of the Birdland Murals series, powered by PNC Bank. The first mural will be unveiled at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Friday, May 26, as part of the Orioles City Connect campaign. The second mural, which is expected to be completed by late summer, will be located in downtown Baltimore. The collaboration will continue to honor Baltimore’s rich culture, storied history, unique neighborhoods, and incredible people, while allowing Orioles fans to experience the remarkable talents of several local artists.
“We are proud that we are able to utilize our partnership with PNC to continue to amplify Baltimore’s vibrant arts community and use it as another avenue to connect to our city and community, highlighting the people and things that make Baltimore so special,” said JENNIFER GRONDAHL, Orioles Senior Vice President, Community Development & Communications.
“PNC Bank is again honored to sponsor this important work for the benefit all Oriole baseball fans,” said LAURA GAMBLE, PNC Regional President for Greater Maryland. “The mural offers a visual connection into Baltimore’s remarkable community and celebrates the diversity of our great city.”
The Oriole Park mural, which will be located on the concourse behind home plate, was created by SHAN WALLACE, an award-winning visual artist, photographer, and educator from East Baltimore. The vinyl mural will depict scenes from Baltimore’s iconic neighborhoods, while blending in elements from the team’s City Connect uniforms.
Inspired by her day-to-day experiences in Baltimore, SHAN’s work is focused on demonstrating the cultural and political narratives of black life, confronting and challenging the ideas that surround existing collections, cultures, and archives of Blackness. Her artwork has received national attention from publications like The Daily Beast, Essence Magazine, Black Entertainment Television (BET), the Washington Post, VICE, and the New York Times. SHAN’s work has also been featured in public and private collections across the United States, including the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.
More information on the second mural will be announced at a later date.
The Birdland Murals series, powered by PNC Bank, began in 2019 and currently features six murals, five of which can be found throughout Oriole Park, and the other in the Waverly community of Baltimore. For more information on the Birdland Murals series, visit Orioles.com/Murals.
