Murals ~ continued from September 2018 issue pdf page 1

Artists are invited to participate through an annual solicitation issued by arts and humanities commission which uses DPW’s funding to provide grants to artists who are ultimately matched with a wall. Commercial property owners can donate their wall year-round by sending a request for consideration to murals.dc@dc.gov.

DPW Director Christopher Shorter says his department considers this program as “an effective tool for preventing graffiti vandalism and a great way to support and sustain our city’s vibrant arts culture.” Further, “We make sure that every mural captures the energy of the neighborhood it lives in and look forward to unveiling the new visual representations of our city and its history over the coming weeks.”

U Street. Painted on the side wall of 2017 11th St., NW by Michael Crossett & Skyler Kelly in 2017 and donated by The Greek Spot.

Images of every mural painted since the program began in 2007 can be viewed on the project’s new website which also features videos, artist information, and a map locator to show where to find the more than 50 murals throughout the District.
