What you'll do
We will go on a 1-hour walking tour between Columbia Heights and Adams Morgan finding murals along the way. This is a special tour that will allow the DC resident and visitors alike to learn about art just around the corner in alleyways or along unnoticed rooftops.
I have been the Executive Director of WBL since 2002. I have been a project manager for multiple murals that have been created around the District and around the world. This walking tour is designed to see some of the projects I have managed and projects I admire. Many of the murals we will visit are hidden gems that you will only see if you know they are there. Some of them are painted in commercial corridors too, but the stories behind the murals are not known despite the fact that they are some of the largest, best preserved works of public art in the District.
