Favorite Murals, 2022


Diego Rivera, Detroit Institute of Arts. A long-term favorite.

I love murals and other street art, and I enjoy participating in the weekly collection of blog posts that feature murals at the blog Sami's Colorful World. This week’s collection is the last of 2022, so I have selected some of my favorite murals that I have seen during the past year.

And Far Away in Ukraine...

Amazing story about Banksy. I love that yellow submarine in Havre de Grace.

Love the Yellow submarine one in Maryland and of course the Banksy mural is fabulous!
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Mae.
Have a great Christmas.

I think the Diego Rivera is my favorite but the last one of the gymnast is so powerful. These are all great. Thank you for sharing.

These are gorgeous. I'm most taken with the last one. Poignant.
