Eastern Market Murals at Artomatic: from Sharon Burton - DC Fine Arts Examiner
The DC Creates! Public Art Program is pleased to announce that nine Eastern Market Window Murals will be on display at this year's Artomatic located on the main stage.
After the fire that destroyed the South Hall in 2007, twenty-five DC area artists painted twenty-seven boarded-up windows on the Eastern Market structure in recognition of the importance that the Market has for local artists and artstic communities. Now that reconstruction of the building is nearing completion and new windows are installed, the murals have been taken down. The DC Commission on Arts and Humanities, in partnershp with the Eastern Market community, plans to auction the murals in the fall. The murals will be on display for the duration of Artomatic.
