From the Mayor’s Office:

“Today, as part of Back to Basics DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser kicked off Washington, DC’s second annual “Great Graffiti Wipeout,” an eight-week initiative to remove graffiti and illegal tagging around Washington, DC. The Mayor also announced that the location of the kickoff, a retail space and recording studio near 6th Street and T Street, NW, has been selected as the next MuralsDC site. MuralsDC is a collaborative initiative between the Department of Public Works (DPW) and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities that replaces graffiti-ridden walls with original works of art.

Still hoping there’s enough room for hometown hero – Lt. Kevin McCrae, DCFD 6 Engine No.4 Platoon. According to the Washington Post:

“Joining Michelle Obama on the wall are her husband, Barack Obama, and such giants as Muhammad Ali, Harriet Tubman and Prince. Also pictured are former Washington mayor Marion Barry; comedians Dick Gregory and Dave Chappelle; musicians Chuck Brown and Wale; and local media legends Jim Vance, Donnie Simpson and Russ Parr. There’s room for a few more faces, but for now those are being kept secret.”

Many more photos after the jump. (more…)
