D.C. Vote Unveils New Mural

This community notice comes to us from Leah Ramsay:

Artists Aniekan Oudofia and Liz Brown of Midnight Raven Design have completed a mural depicting George Washington gagged on the U Street face of 1502 U Street NW (corner of 15th and U Streets). DC Vote sponsored the mural and has used the image in the past. 

“The movement for DC democracy is changing, and it’s very important for the arts to have a role in the District’s protest,” said Daniel Solomon, owner of the building on which the mural is painted and founder of the advocacy group DC Vote. “This mural expresses in one image the injustice Washingtonians suffer, even though our founding fathers fought to end taxation without representation. DC residents are still fighting to have their voices heard today.”
