Fantastic Mural

You know, I've noticed a ton of amazing murals around town. I love this one off 13th St. It is so much nicer than just a blank wall. What do you think?

what an awesome piece of the tropics in DC... what's the building it's on--and any clue who painted it or why?

murals are proven deterrent of graffiti, so often trouble spots for graffiti will receive murals. In addition to keeping vandals from defacing buildings, these murals are a great expression of community.

my co-workers went on the walking tour of U street area murals last weekend. Maybe they will know.

i think it's great, especially if children are involved in painting it. ...

This is about South-Eeast corner of 13th and Kenyon St.intersection.

It is facing the back side of the 5 houses (1302 to 13010 Kenyon St.)

It's behind the MVS (Mennonite Voluntary Service) house on Kenyon Street, across from Harriet Tubman Elementary School. Maybe they know.

"murals are a proven deterrent of graffiti"--but how do you tell the difference? is it only graffiti if it's sort of, you know, hip-hop-y?
