    The Lexington Market subway station's mosaics are the rare example of good public art in Baltimore
    Baltimore is a city with great public life. We're also a city that's known for having great art. So it's downright confusing that the majority of our public art is underwhelming, predictable, or just plain bad. Because the uncertain fate of the Red Line has been so widely discussed in the media lately, I decided to go on the MTA's website to check out the "Art in Transit" proposals that may one day grace our potential subway-to-surface-light-rail line's stations. Spoiler alert: They're mostly pretty terrible. As much as I'm eagerly waiting for construction on the Red Line to begin, I'm not too excited about the prospect of someday waiting for the train and staring at yet another mural of children laughing in front of rowhouses or a "kooky" metal assemblage.
