About

MuralsDC was created to replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, to revitalize sites within communities in the District of Columbia, and to teach young people the art of aerosol painting.  This initiative aims to positively engage the District’s youth by teaching proper professional art techniques, providing supplies, and a legal means to practice and perform their artistic skill in a way that promotes respect for public and private property and community awareness.

The three platforms on which the MuralsDC project is based are:

  • Illegal Graffiti Abatement
  • Youth Outreach
  • Community Revitalization

 

There are more than 50 MuralsDC projects across the District. Each mural tells a unique story of DC’s diverse neighborhoods while deterring further illegal graffiti.

The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) is looking to replace graffiti tagged walls with free murals.
