A growing number of murals adds color and interest to U Street’s outdoor spaces, but that’s not all these diverse public artworks do!

Join artist and author Cory Stowers on a walking tour of 12 murals throughout the Shaw and U Street neighborhoods to learn about the historical, social, and political significance of (un)commissioned public art, along with the unique styles of the local artists and cooperatives that created them.

This class is presented in partnership with DC Murals.

This class is an Academy of Funk program, presented in partnership with the 2019 Funk Parade — coming up on May 11, 2019. Funk Parade is a one-of-a-kind parade, street fair, and music festival celebrating U Street, D.C., and the spirit of funk. Visit www.funkparade.org to view this year’s lineup of musical artists, discover more community programming, and find out how you can get involved in keeping the funk alive in D.C.
