Shaw Main Streets announces the completion of the largest mural in Shaw.
Entitled “Together,” the colorful mural, which depicts citizens demonstrating for their rights in the nation's capital. It was painted on the north wall of the building at 1301-09 9th Street, NW, facing the Sunoco gas station at 1317 9th Street, NW.
The mural was designed by local artists Maggie O’Neal, Nia Ketura Calhoun and Lisa Marie Thalhammer and painted by the artists and assistants.
The project was funded by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities Public Art Building Communities grant program and managed by Shaw Main Streets. Thanks to Douglas Developoment for allowing the mural to be painted on their building. Additional thanks to C and W Services, Career Path DC, and Four Points for their support and cooperation.
A plaque bearing the name of the mural, the artists' names, and sponsors will be installed and inveiled in a ceremony at a later date.
