Murals of Woodley Park and Adams Morgan - A Walking Tour

Some of DC’s most multi-cultural public art

 

Saturday, June 11, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The trajectory from elegant Woodley Park through multi-cultural Adams Morgan is resplendent with some of the oldest and most story-laden murals in DC. Many speak to the Latin American heritage historically centered in this part of the city.

Woodley Park hosts bustling hotels, long-time residents and diplomats, and a fussy poltergeist. A hub for urban nightlife, Adams Morgan has long been a social, commercial and cultural center for its ethnically diverse residents, and the first integrated neighborhood in DC to host street art murals.

Throughout these neighborhoods you will see murals painted in homage to artists' heritage; significant historic and cultural figures; and tributes to the neighborhoods and communities themselves. You'll learn about the artists, and the stories the murals tell, along with some historic high and lows.

Wander along Calvert Street NW and 18th Street NW, with forays into alleys and side streets to experience a vivid selection of urban art that illustrates some of the distinctive cultures of the city.

Know Before You Go:

Politics and Prose is now following DC Government and CDC guidelines for Covid protocol. Masks are optional. We are encouraging the use of wearing masks but will not be checking vaccination cards or mandating that everyone wear a mask. We'll continue monitoring the covid situation closely, and any decision to reinstate a mask mandate or vaccine acknowledgement requirment will be tied to the community rating system recently introduced by the CDC.
