Mural in progress by Jarrett Ferrier. Props to Stephen Voss and Charlene Kannankeril for making it happen.
“Charlene and I worked on the DCCAH grant application, soliciting opinions on subject matter from the community, meeting with the Tenleytown Historical Society and presenting at the ANC3E meeting. Jarrett came up with a rendering incorporating the top votes on subjects and then took community feedback and revised it before we submitted the grant application. We were thrilled to receive the grant and are thrilled the that the building’s owners have allowed Jarrett to use the entire south-facing wall.
Jarrett will be working on the mural most weekdays until completion around the end of September. We are working with area schools to make field trips out to the mural site and encourage residents to visit as well – 4425 Wisconsin Avenue NW (Han Cleaners/Envy Nails building). We’re putting up some information on this website and, closer to the completion of the mural, it will go live with interviews, photos and other information about the mural and its subjects.”
