Murals DC Makes It Happen

03Nov09

For all of you who do not know. None of the great work that we do would be possible without the help of the Murals DC program. We are so happy to be a part of what they are doing in the district and we hope to keep working with them to revitalize the communities in our city. Here’s a quick description for those who may be unfamiliar with the program…

The MuralsDC project is a program created by DC Councilmember Jim Graham as an effort to replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, to revitalize sites within the community and to teach young people the art of aerosol painting.  The goal of this initiative is to positively engage the District’s youth by teaching proper art techniques, providing supplies, and a legal means to practice and perform their skill in a way that promotes respect for public and private property and community awareness.   Site selection is based on areas of the District with high incidence of illegal graffiti as identified by the Department of Public Works (DPW) and other agencies.  Each mural reflects the character, culture and history of the neighborhoods in the District and interests from the business/residence owners.
