New Mural at Sweet Mango Cafe Honors Go-Go Godfather Chuck Brown
I’m sure many residents who walk past Sweet Mango Cafe (3701 New Hampshire Ave.) every day noticed last Friday, May 18th, that a new mural was in the early stages of being painted. While I’m not sure how detailed it will ultimately be, enough of it was completed to clearly show that it is a tribute to Go-Go Godfather Chuck Brown, who passed away on May 16 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore at the age of 75.
Below is the image that inspired the mural.
The mural is based on a 1992 photograph of Chuck Brown taken by the Washington City Paper’s Darrow Montgomery.Art comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
