Last Vestige, Miles Davis, Gone from Historic Mural at 11th and U Street, NW – New Mural Coming


A reader reports:

“The amazing Miles Davis mural on the back of Bohemian Caverns has been painted over, all in purple. I’m devastated. Loved that hornblower’s silhouette. There are a bunch of black line drawing outlines that weren’t there yesterday. Guess it was an artistic decision? I really miss that horn player silhouette though!”


Updates when the new one’s completed. Here’s what it looked like back in 2007:


and in 2013:

  • Nothing lasts forever, but it was a great mural!

  • How have I not noticed this at all this week? Mornings are tough. However, I have noticed that the auto shop sign that was kept at the relatively new condos on 11th and V has been removed. The cinderblock on the lawn is still there, but no sign.

  • Looks like they are replacing it with Miles, Ella, Duke and Trane. Should be nice when it’s been colored.
