This Saturday, August 15th, check out (and take part in) Mural Jam, the "capital’s largest public art event" at the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center (next to the Rhode Island Ave Metro station) to see over 100 artists paint a football field-sized wall.
The event is the culmination of local muralists mentoring kids over the past couple months in developing and designing public art. Watch them work from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., or even pick up a brush and join in. The event is free and geared towards all ages. It will feature activities for children, food, a community area for everyone who comes to pick up a brush and paint, and DJs with music for entertainment.
The event is sponsored by Albus Cavus, D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and the Mayor's Summer Youth Employment Program.
