(Washington, DC) – MuralsDC will conclude its 2011 program with a unique art exhibit featuring replicas of each of the, mostly graffiti-style, murals installed during the program and other works by MuralsDC artists Tuesday, Sept. 6, 6:00-9:00pm, at 1300 “H” Street, NE (the former R.L. Christian Library). The free event will also feature live art by a local sculptor.

 

MuralsDC was launched in 2007 as a means to deter graffiti. The program, coordinated by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities,the DC Department of Public Works, and Words, Beats and Life, positively engages District youth by teaching proper art techniques and respect for public property. Eight new murals have been installed this summer in Wards 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
