MuralsDC is a publicly-funded program, which selects artists to paint elaborate murals on walls frequently tagged with illegal graffiti. The program, run by the Department of Public Works (DPW), is celebrating the completion of its latest round of murals with a bus tour, visiting each new art site, on Friday morning.
Artists, participants and others are gathering at Walter Pierce Park in Adams Morgan at 10:30 a.m., and the bus will be leaving at 11 a.m. with limited seating available. There are six murals total, spread throughout wards 1, 4, 7 and 8.
