Thanks to Chuck Ludlam for sharing and sending renderings from artist Jarrett Ferrier:

“I’m leading the work to paint a fantastic mural on the huge white wall on the back side of the McDonalds. Right across from Johnson’s. It’s a celebration of Rock Creek Park — with Glover-Archbold Park right across the street. Painting of the mural will begin within a month or two.”

The iconic Duke Ellington mural was removed from the True Reformer building at 12th and U St, NW back in May 2012. At that time we were told repair could take up to a year.  In 2013 we learned that:

“Local Artist Byron Peck would create a replica of his Duke Ellington mural on U Street. The Commission looked at all of the options for preservation. The structure behind the mural was eroding. The best option is a replica and Peck has agreed. The goal is to have an unveiling and installation by Duke Ellington’s birthday in April 2014.”

And after a few more years I had completely given up hope. Thanks to U Street Buzz for sending us word that they heard it was coming back.

I inquired as well and hear that “weather permitting” the mural should return sometime this April!! Fingers crossed and stay tuned.

Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s minimalist glass paintings, artist Ravi Raman created Love In Six Lines as a celebration of love and relationships depicted in a series of whimsical paintings and Instagram posts. Limiting each illustration to just six lines, Raman makes the analogy between his simple yet deceptively complicated drawings to that of love and relationships. (more…)
