The Artists:

Celebrating the Temporary Nature of Outdoor Artworks

Beginning in 2015 a series of works were commissioned by artists with a history in the Shaw neighborhood and in Blagden Alley — They created a stunning display of new works painted directly on the garage doors of several buildings in Bladgen Alley. These artworks were made possible with a D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Public Art Building Community grant program and with the support of Blagden Alley neighbors that supply the canvas for some of DC’s finest artists. Murals get the artwork of painters out into the public sphere in a uniquely bold and playful way, a great way to educate the public about local artists living and working in their community.
