Billie Holiday Arts Project – Mosaic by Joe Rizza “Flying” (1815 E Pratt St)
Joe Rizza created a mosaic commemorating Billie Holiday and her music. The mosaic is part of the Arts Project underway in the 200 block of S Durham St. Joe is a local artist from Baltimore and lives in Upper Fell’s Point. He completed the mosaic in November 2013. Be sure to look for the hidden objects in the mosaic. (Hints: A broken heart in the bird, a musical note in the painted blue bird’s eye, three flying birds and musical notes in the upper right corner). Below are photos of the mosaic process. In addition, the mosaic was mentioned in the December 2013 issue of Baltimore Magazine.
