8th Street Stripes

What a kool way to spend the afternoon on Saturday adding to the collective field of color stripes on 8th St. NW in Penn Quarter. I was lucky enough to arrive while the music was still playing and helped to paint an orange stripe the length of the street. Carolyn Parker was passing out t-shirts to all the volunteers painting in the street. Lots of other folk, including Rachel Dickerson and Tony Gittens from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and folks from the Corcoran Gallery of Art were wielding paint rollers and pouring the buckets of paint. Here's some pics to enjoy of the days work. Mokha Laget, long time studio assistant to Gene Davis, designed the project. She did a great design which will stay on the street for the next couple of weeks.

Metro to Gallery Place and walk to 8th Street towards the mall. The stripes are on 8th St. NW between D & E.
