Organizer DC Murals: Spectacle and Story

Organizer of Tour the 14th Street Graffiti Museum

DC Murals: Spectacle and Story grew out of interest in the public murals of Washington, DC, in the 1990s, just as the art was emerging as a grassroots cultural phenomenon and garnering increased interest around the city. As an American cultural historian, as I saw more murals going up, I wanted to know why they were there, who did them, and what they meant. To better understand the art changing the cityscape around me, I recruited a small team of associates and started documenting and researching the murals to gain a better perspective on what had become became known as “a people’s art.”

Our core mission is to make DC’s magnificent public art more accessible and meaningful to all. Public murals are perhaps the first “social media.” Each piece tells a story through its visual message, and each piece also has a story, embodied in its purpose, execution, sponsorship, and community context. To this end, DC Murals offers public programs, tours, and exhibitions—all of which feature the muralists themselves– to share our insights with a wider public. We also archive and digitize our work to ensure that the historical record of our murals will be preserved for future generations.
