The DC Department of Public Works (DPW) is searching for mural sites in all DC Wards to be considered for the MuralsDC program from June-August 2011. MuralsDC is a partnership between DPW and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) – created to help replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, to revitalize the DC community, and engage DC youth.

There are currently 27 MuralsDC projects throughout the District. Each tell a unique story of DC’s diverse neighborhoods while deterring further illegal graffiti. DPW and DCCAH will focus on sites that are frequent targets of graffiti.
