Mural Tour

Posted on July 13th, 2020 by Elizabeth Nelson

Capitol Hill is home to many dazzling (some, quite literally) works of art, painted on the exteriors of homes and businesses. Some murals are well known to the community – but we’ve included them because we love them and the Mural Tour wouldn’t be complete without them.  Others may be familiar only to their immediate neighbors. Several of them have been on view for decades but many are more recent, including those that are part of the DC Statehood Murals project.  One is not actually a mural at all but it’s art on the exterior of a structure, so no reason not to give it the attention it deserves.

While the Tour can be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of your home, we hope that many will use this opportunity to walk our streets and alleys. Art is always best appreciated in person; particularly true in this case where the scale and placement of the work made photography a challenge.

Enjoy other walking tours, including the Whimsy of Capitol Hill photo scavenger hunt.
