The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Presents Journey Anacostia

By Editorial Team on June 21, 2013

Journey Anacostia is a public art sculpture and mural by DC artist Wilfredo Valladares.  Its dedication took place Saturday, June 22 at 10am. The installation reflects the diverse history and heritage of the Anacostia community and seeks to inspire the viewer to establish a dialogue on the interconnection of the past, present and future of Anacostia. The walls behind the sculpture were transformed with a colorful mural created in collaboration with youth from the United Planning Organization’s POWER Program.
