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.
