Barack Obama inspired his way into the White House in 2008 with a message that resonated on the streets of Washington, DC. Since then, depictions of the President have popped up across the nation’s capital. Obama-related graffiti even made it into our very first blog post, just after inauguration in 2009.

Here’s how the Prez has been depicted during the first four years on the streets of the seat of power:

  1. Where were the “Jan 20 Our Streets” and the last “Queen” pics taken???

  2. Where is the Obama “progress” located?

    • That Obama Progress mural is actually where the Marvin is today; at the corner of 14th & U St NW DC. In 2008 when the previous building was torn down to renovate, this Shepard Fairey piece popped up along with DECOY (woman in blue dress) at the construction site.

      The murals are still there, sort of — they’re behind the brick wall in Marvin on the north side (left, as you walk in), between Marvin and Gibson. If you had walked past during construction, you could see the new building being built around the mural. Today, you can still see a weathered Obama Progress mural from the same time on top of Logan Hardware by Whole Foods at 15th & P St. NW DC.
