HOT WALLS: Estamos Aquí (We Are Here)

November 8, 2014

Empty lot on NE corner of South Broadway & Eastern Avenue 

Baltimore, MD


In partnership with Luminous Intervention HOT WALLS and The Latino Providers Network Inc. (LPN), Estamos Aquí (We Are Here) is a series of projected portraits of Latino business owners, community leaders, employees, and residents that tell the stories, contributions, and struggles of Latinos in Baltimore, MD. These portraits and stories were projected on the side of an empty lot located near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and South Broadway Street—one of the centers of Baltimore’s Latino businesses and commercial venues. 


Estamos Aquí (We Are Here) emphasized why this community is valuable, what the community would lose if their businesses were pushed out, and will recognize Latinos as a vital part of this diverse Baltimore neighborhood.


About HOT WALLS: HOT WALLS is a large-scale outdoor projection series intended to highlight the substantial local talent across Baltimore, where artists will be given the opportunity to experiment with a new and exciting medium. Eight artists came together to create seven one-night-only projections throughout the fall of 2014. Large-scale projections are attention grabbing and can gather people together for sharing stories, envisioning creative futures, inspiring critical discussion, and voicing concerns.
