November 2018 in one photo. Thanks to Stuart and Micaela for sending from 15th Street just south of Irving Street, NW. This mural was done in 2009 by Joel Bergner. Any permit pros out there able to find out what’s coming to this building is 3043 15th Street, NW?
Update: condos. Thanks to Adam (and others) for finding.
When it first went up in July 2009
6th and Rhode Island Ave, NW
On the southeast corner of 6th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW in Shaw, there is an empty lot that was previously the location for Mr. P’s Ribs, which were charmingly served out of a modified school bus. it has now been nearly four years since Mr. P sadly passed away. I had nearly given up hope that anything interesting would move into that prime location.
Update: Electric Cool-Aid has a Facebook page:
But this morning I walked by and spoke to some artists preparing a large wall mural on the site. The mural is somehow connected to Pabst Blue Ribbon — they seem to have sponsored murals across the country. According to the artists, the mural should be done in just a few days. PBR is also reportedly partnering with someone local and a beer garden will be opening on the lot in April. The rumored name is “Electric Cool-Aid,” and it will serve both PBRs and slushy drinks.

From Shaw not far from The Shay.
Thanks to Ryan Wegman for sharing with us:
“Woodley Park’s very first zoo dedicated mural is coming along (Calvert & Conn.) Now that it’s nearly complete, here’s what the finished product will look like (with minor changes — elephant holds an orange!).”
Ed. Note: This replaces the one that was tagged last November and is across the street from the iconic Marilyn Monroe mural.

Does anyone know what, if any, particular rules or regulations buildings need to abide by when commissioning a mural for the side of a residential building? Also, are there good resources available for engaging with the local artistic community to commission murals?”
Thanks to Bry for sending.
