Baltimore: Actually, I like it.

Think locally, act locally.

Sticker, T-shirt, and bookmark made in Baltimore: art directed and designed by Julia Kim Smith, printed by Momentum and Indigo Ink, and sold exclusively at Atomic Books and Sideshow at The American Visionary Art Museum (sticker only). Every sticker, T-shirt, and bookmark makes an impact: We donate 100% of profits to The Creative Alliance of Baltimore and the Enoch Pratt Free Library.

The limited edition postcard, commissioned by The Creative Alliance and printed by Typecast Press is available in an edition of 200, each signed and numbered by the artist. Text on front reads “Baltimore: Actually, I like it.”; text on back reads “Dearest_______,” to be completed by the sender.

“A trending unofficial civic slogan declares ‘Baltimore: Actually, I Like It,’ which best captures the mix of resignation and defensiveness that comes from residing in a place long synonymous with what’s wrong with American cities. This may never be a Portlandia-style urban playground, but the raggedy pleasures of Baltimore living are real and durable, and can be found no where else. That’s why we’re here, and why we stay, even though sometimes we all feel like tearing the place down.”
Grist, David Dudley, “Why Baltimore is fighting for its life, again,” April 2015
