13th and Florida Ave, NE

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“We’ve seen a lot of construction guys going in and out of the old “Black Market” building lately, curious if this new art is an indication of a business to come? It’s been sitting empty for lease for a really long time after they did the renovations.”

    Oh my goodness, I love this! I hope it is indeed a mural, but even the projection is beautiful. This is a classic example of 17th century Spanish/Netherlandish still life style. Lovely to see classic art making an appearance in surprising public spaces. Looks even more luscious and mysterious than it would in the original small scale.

    It’s a mural. Not sure if it means anything is happening in the building.
