DC Department of Public Works (DPW)
The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) is looking for mural sites in wards 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 to be considered as part of its MuralsDC program from June-August 2011.

MuralsDC is a partnership between DPW and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH).  MuralsDC was created by Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham to help replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, to revitalize sites within the community to engage young people in a legal activity that promotes respect  for public and private property. Visit muralsdc.org to view past murals.

There are currently 27 MuralsDC projects throughout the District. Each tell a unique story of DC’s diverse neighborhoods while deterring further illegal graffiti.  Visit muralsdc.org to view past murals.  DPW and DCCAH are looking for sites that are frequent targets of graffiti.

How to Submit: Submissions and requests for Authorization forms can be emailed to Nancee Lyons at Nancee.lyons[at]dc.gov, with the Subject line: MURALSDC. Or mailed to Nancee Lyons, DC Department of Public Works, 2000 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009.  Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2011. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
