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:

Mural Art Project Reception @THEARC Flyer v2

From an email:

“Over two weeks local teens from both sides of the Anacostia River have collaborated to create a 55 foot mural. The underlying energy of the mural will focus on capturing the essence of neighborhoods along the Anacostia River through trans-community dialogue.

Tomorrow, there will be a FREE Mural Exhibition Reception open to the public on August 19th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at THEARC’s ArtReach Community Gallery. RSVP here if you would like to attend.”
