The Open Walls DC is an art initiative in Washington, DC, that provides spaces and walls for emerging and established street artists, graffiti artists, art students, and muralists. The goal of the initiative is to create large, ever changing murals that beautify the city. The mural in this image, a work of art in progress, is an example of the creativity of the artist and the beauty their work brings to the community. The artists creating the murals have permits. This image captures one of the most important aspects of the program: adding beauty to neighbors. The fence in the foreground is almost lost as the mural dominates the scene.
