Murals Dc-Sherman Ave Mural


One freezing morning, we all got on a bus that took us to all six works of art created as a part of MuralsDC. This program was initiated in 2007 by Ward One 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. It is currently managed by Dominic “Tru” Painter.

In 2008 and 2009, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in partnership with the Department of Public Works joined forces to further the MuralsDC mission. The goal of MuralsDC 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. We celebrate the completion of six new murals, each reflecting the character, culture and history of the neighborhoods in the District.
