MuralsDC will conclude its 2011 program with a unique art exhibit featuring replicas of each of the “street-art” style murals installed during the program as well as other works by MuralsDC artists.

This event will not only have art on display but will  also have live music, live art creation by a local sculptor, a BBQ and a chance to meet with the Lead Artists, their Student Apprentices and the film makers from The Red Line DC Project.  Also meet the staff of the DC Commission and the Department of Public Works who make this on-going program possible as well as the property owners who so donated their walls and ideas for the mural designs.

MuralsDC was launched in 2007 by Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham. The program, coordinated by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the DC Department of Public Works and Words, Beats and Life, positively engages District youth by teaching proper art techniques and respect for public property. Eight new murals have been installed this summer in Wards 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

The event is located at  in the former R.L. Christian Library at 1300 H Street, NE (and more recently the former site of the Temporium)
