Warby Parker Mural – Baltimore, MD

For more information on the mural, please check out Otto Steininger Facebook page.

Otto was honored to get the commission from such a socially responsible company, and join the ranks of artists like Maira Kalman and Geoff McFetridge (whose art is featured at other Warby Parker locations).

Warby Parker donates money to their portfolios of charities that train others in providing glasses, as well as buying materials to make and sell glasses. Instead of outright donating glasses, they’re equipping people in economically distressed areas with the tools they need to find a career.

Aside from eye care, the Warby Parker stores encourage literacy. Their employees all get a copy of Jack Kerouac’s Dharma Bums when they begin working there. The FAQs on the Warby Parker website has other book recommendations. The retail locations have more books to peruse if you’re interested.

We hope that the people coming into the Baltimore store will enjoy the artwork as much as Otto enjoyed creating it!
