Talk: SATURDAY, April  29 from 3:30 to 5:30pm

.

This program introduces the artists who brought the then-new public art to Washington as far back as the 1970s. Our early earliest murals have a surprising connection to the launch of the mural cycle in Chicago. These pioneering muralists braved some naysayers to establish the styles and approaches that persist today in all parts of the city. Several muralists and others will explain their work and discuss how murals transformed the city and its culture.

The talk is located at the Shaw Library 1639 7th St. NW.
