From Mid City Financial:

“Murals are generally featured on walls but this one is a little bit different. The former Brentwood Village Shopping Center parking lot located in the 1300 block of Rhode Island Avenue NE is brighter and more colorful than ever! Thanks to artist Matt Corrado and the Bright Light creative agency–with a little help from the Brookland Manor residents– the Northeast community gathering space now boasts a bold pop of color for years to come. The property owners, MidCity Financial, commissioned Corrado for the project.”
