About MuralsDC

MuralsDC 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.    Each mural reflects the character, culture and history of the neighborhoods in the District and interests from the business/residence owners.
