MuralsDC Makes News WORLDWIDE!

The sophomore year of MuralsDC in 2009 brought new levels of exposure to our project and participating arts/youth groups.  From the cover of the Washington Post’s weekend section to an editorial on BBC World News to having a number of our murals used as visuals between scenes of MTV’s popular The Real World DC edition, our work is getting major attention.  Worldwide, people are learning about this ground breaking approach to combating the illegal defacing of public property by using graffiti artists to mentor and train young aspiring artists in this specific skill set and instilling a sense of community in their work.  As we enter into our 3rd year program of MuralsDC, learn more about what is happening in the District by clicking on the links below.

    I am working with the Anacostia Community Museum on a project to map creative expression in wards 7 and 8. Can you tell me more about the MuralsDC program and the works commissioned in the area? My email is krause@si.edu
