Led by Perry Frank, Ph.D. and Cory Stowers of DC Murals: Spectacle and Story.

Guided by the long-time students of the city’s murals and muralists, hop on the bus to explore both classic and new outdoor murals. DC’s current murals began as socially conscious art in the late 1960s, and now may be abstract and decorative, quasi-advertisement, computer generated, or graffiti inspired. Riders will disembark for closer looks at the political, commemorative, angry, and celebratory expressions of city concerns. DC Murals: Spectacle and Story has been documenting and supporting the city’s murals and mural makers for 20 years.

The tour will begin and end outside the Carnegie Library, 801 K Street NW, Washington, DC.

This tour was created in conjunction with the 43rd Annual Conference on DC History, November 4-5, 2016.
