Adams Morgan White House Voting Rights Mural Painted Over After Being Vandalized


“Dear PoPville,

This weekend, the mural of the White House on the alleyway between 18th St and Champlain in Adams Morgan was graffiti’d over. Yesterday morning there was a workman painting the entire wall back to white. It’s a shame this iconic mural is no more.

Not sure whose artwork it was or who actually owns the wall, but I would be interested to know if anyone plans to restore it.”


Unfortunately this mural often was hit with graffiti. It’s unfortunate they weren’t able to salvage it. When I stopped by yesterday the top of the mural was still visible. Here’s how it looked in 2009:
