Community involvement in the planning, design, and creation of each mural is integral to the success and impact of the Murals DC program. Most mural sites are identified by community members. Their input is instrumental in shaping the design and vision for each mural, resulting in a work of art that reflects the character, culture, and history of that neighborhood.
Murals DC works to do more than just create a lasting piece of public art; the project encourages expression and fosters cooperation within communities.
