More Information About the Murals

The DC Murals: Spectacle and Story became a popular event during the 1990s when interest in the public murals grew substantially. After the public became enamored with the breathtaking artwork, the murals began to be documented by researchers in the area. This was a great way to keep track of the artwork. The goal of DC Murals is to help tell stories through the artwork that depicts beauty, nature, history, struggles, and more. As we all know, art can be a form of activism. In order to help the public become more aware of the art, DC Murals provides the following for visitors to enjoy:

  • Public Programs
  • Exhibitions
  • Tours
  • More!

For those of you who love art or who feel inspired by the fascinating murals, consider becoming a sponsor of DC Murals or participating in various events. All artwork is archived digitally to make certain that the future generations will be aware of the murals in case they are ever damaged. With Washington D.C. being such a historic area, there’s an importance placed on art and history. The next time you’re in the area, be sure to take part in the DC Murals Walking Tour. Not only will you be able to enjoy art, but you’ll also learn more about the historic areas as well!
