New Mural Coming to Park View

Last Friday, I noticed that a new mural is now in progress on the Warder Street side of the Rock Creek Market (corner of Warder and Rock Creek Church Road). The mural is the work of Juan Pineda (Website here) and is in collaboration with Murals DC. Murals DC had originally come before ANC 1A at their May 14th meeting to discuss the possibility of a mural coming to Rock Creek Market, but no design or artist had been selected at that time.

The mural’s design is a series of multicolored doors of various shapes and sizes. In speaking with the artist, I learned that the concept behind this is that these are doors of opportunity.

According to the Murals DC Website, the initiative “aims to help replace illegal graffiti with artistic works, to revitalize sites within the community, and to teach young people the art of aerosol painting. The goal of this initiative is to positively impact the District’s youth by providing them with the resources they need to engage in this project.”

The wall at Rock Creek Market where the mural is being painted has been tagged twice in as many years.

Below are photos of the mural in progress.

  5. Will the doctor performing blind dissection be able to adequately account for this variability in the average patient
    and will he risk operating on an unwary patient in whom
    these differences might be profound. Consult with a veterinarian for the proper
    dosage based on the individual pig’s weight. Your hair protected the top of the head from the elements.
